Ad-Options Support 9-year-old’s Charity Bike Ride!

13 August 2010

Leyland based Business Gift distributors Ad-Options Limited are helping to support the remarkable charitable efforts of a Chorley schoolboy.

On Wednesday 4th August 9 year old Vincent Wardale a pupil at Abbey Village Primary School in Chorley sets out on his biggest sporting challenge yet - a “Coast to Coast Bike Ride” from Whitehaven in Cumbria to Sunderland in the North East in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice 25th Anniversary!

It’s all part of the Sporting Events Project which John Gibson, a Volunteer Sports Fundraiser, has set up to raise the awareness of the Hospice to a younger generation in the local community.

As John says “Julie, his mother, rang me in May saying that Vincent wanted to raise some money for St. Catherine’s Hospice.  His aim being during the school summer holidays (4 - 7 August) to cycle 140 miles to complete the Coast-to-Coast cycle route. As Vincent says “I am letting my parents tag along with me”.  It just goes to show what our children can do”.

Our thanks to Stephen Knight, Headteacher at Abbey Village Primary School, who has been very supportive of Vincent’s challenge from day one, and to Steve Ward who runs in Leyland and has kindly donated T-Shirts and Caps for their journey.

Steve Ward told us “We have helped St Catherine’s both directly and through the Sporting Challenges being held this year, which is the 25th anniversary for both ourselves and the Hospice. When John Gibson told us of Vincent’s efforts we were delighted to get involved and send our best wishes to both him and his supportive parents”.
