Belper charity in 300 mile challenge

Cyclists competing in a giant relay race to raise funds in aid of Belper-based Derbyshire Wildlife Trust will cross the finish line at the town’s River Gardens.

The 300-mile challenge, involving 20 members of staff will see a baton transported to every one of the Trust’s 42 reserves between August 30 and September 2.

The riders hope to raise money for the Trust’s £50,000 anniversary appeal, which has been organised to celebrate the Trust’s 50th anniversary.
