Wilmslow branch’s Sarah Vickers completes 50km night bike ride for cancer charities.
Last weekend, Sarah Vickers, our Recruitment & Community Manager at the Wilmslow branch, embarked on a remarkable journey through the streets of Manchester. She undertook a challenging 50km charity bike ride throughout the night, starting at 10pm, all in support of the vital cause of combating breast, cervical, and ovarian cancers. The event managed to raise an impressive £130 for these charities, thanks to Sarah’s dedication!
Sarah’s incredible determination allowed her to complete the night time charity bike ride in just 3 hours and 20 minutes. She enthusiastically shared her experience, saying:
“I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge! The event was called ‘Ride the Night,’ making its debut in Manchester. Witnessing the city’s iconic landmarks illuminated at night was truly captivating. However, the last 6 miles proved to be the toughest stretch. Battling the darkness, rain, and cold, I was determined to keep pedalling. The camaraderie among participants was heart-warming, and I’m already committed to signing up for next year!”
The funds raised during this event will contribute to the invaluable work of Ride the Night’s three ‘Women V Cancer’ charities; Breast Cancer Now, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action. These organisations tirelessly work towards raising awareness, offering support, and funding crucial research for breast, ovarian, and cervical cancers.

Together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of those affected by cancer! Your support and generosity matter more than ever in our collective effort to combat cancer.
