We were delighted to finally catch up with our 2020 Smile4Rich Fundraiser of the Year winners recently in Ocean Village.
Neil Westbrook and Bob Bain who make up two thirds of the 'Le Tour De Farce - The Sequel' team, were presented with their well deserved awards by Rob Langman from MarineSpace, whose continued and generous sponsorship of this award, enabled us to recognise the achievements of our dedicated fundraisers, who went that 'extra mile', despite the challenges that the pandemic presented.
Huge congratulations once again to Neil, Frank and Bob, who re-created the 2005 fundraiser 'Le Tour De Farce', which saw Neil, Frank and three other friends cycle a 390 mile route from Middlesbrough to Southampton.
The 2020 Sequel necessitated a rather different format with Neil riding the equivalent of 780 miles, from Southampton to Middlesbrough and back on a Turbo Trainer, while Frank tackled a virtual 621 mile route from his home in Scotland to Southampton, and Bob cycled the full 780 mile distance on his local roads in Dorset.
Sadly due to distance, Frank was unable to join us for the presentation, but his award will be winding it's way to him in Scotland shortly.
Congratulations to you all and thank you for your incredible efforts!
