Pedal4PiedPiper virtual cycling event raises £4000

In place of its annual Sportive, the Pied Piper Appeal partnered with the Rotary Gloucester Quays team to run a virtual cycling fundraising event last month.

LtoR: Cat Hage Pied Piper trustee, Lee Summers president Rotary GQ, Julie Kent vice chair Pied Piper.

The Pedal4PiedPiper ride involved individuals, families and some local businesses, including accountants Randall & Payne, Tayntons Solicitors and EG Carter cycling varying distances across the week.

Randall & Payne's four-strong team clocked up 358 miles, with business advisor head Will Abbott amassing more than 200 of them in Tenerife.

Pied Piper has now revealed that the fundraising total reached just under £3600, which was generously rounded up to £4000 by Lee Summers of Elmrep Office Solutions.

Many other local businesses also supported and sponsored the event including Wholly Gelato, Randall & Payne, Avenue Cars, EG Carter, Tayntons Solicitors, Abbey Business Solutions, Cool Hire Refrigeration, BST Electrical, SK Refrigeration Heating & Cooling, Letters & Lights, Gloucestershire College and Clifton Cameras.

Rider medals are available for collection at the charity's shop on Court Road in Brockworth, Gloucester.

The charity plans to run the event again online next year as well as bringing the actual Sportive back.
