Over 100 cyclists complete Master’s Ride for Lifelites
Cyclists riding from London to Brighton as part of the Lifelites Master’s Ride raised more than £20,000 for Lifelites last Saturday (22 June).
Organisers say that over 100 riders were taking part, many of them raising money for the children’s hospice charity Lifelites, who provide specialist technology for youngsters in hospices across the country, including throughout London and Sussex.
The Master’s Ride is an annual charity bike ride from London to Brighton. Founded by Freemasons from the Province of Middlesex, the Ride has raised £160,000 over the last eight years for a number of well-known charities. The Ride, which is open to anyone, even has a smaller children’s ride that takes place in along the mile-long sea front at Hove.
Simone Enefer-Doy, chief executive of Lifelites said that all of the riders were heroes: “It’s a tremendous effort to cycle that distance in such difficult conditions, the money you are raising will go to where it is needed most: providing state of the art technology for children in hospices who have severe disabilities and are not expected to reach adulthood.”
