CANCELLED events is now the norm due to coronavirus lockdown but it doesn't have to stop you from raising money for a wonderful cause.

Bracknell's children's charity Sebastian's Action Trust is urging keen cyclists and charity-goers to take part in the 'My Prudential Ride100' after this year's cancelled event.

Residents can find a use for their bicycles and cycle around the neighbourhood to help support more than 600 families of seriously-ill children in Berkshire.

The Prudential RideLondon, the world’s greatest festival of cycling, was due to take place on August 15th to 16th.

Due to the COVID-19, the mass participation event has been cancelled but people can still get involved by taking part in the My Prudential Ride100 in their neighbourhood.

Participants can choose to cycle 19 miles, 46 miles, 100 miles or take part in the Freecycle Challenge where riders can choose a distance of their choice.

The challenge can be done wherever you live and with whoever you like; it’s your ride, your way.

There isn’t long to go until the event, so or further information and to register, choosing Sebastian’s Action Trust as your chosen charity.

Once registered, supporters need to set up a sponsorship page via Virgin Money Giving.

It’s a good idea to share the sponsorship page with family, friends, colleagues and neighbours encouraging them to make a donation through sponsorship to raise as much as possible for the Trust.
