The money raised will be donated to the Rotary Wheel Appeal which is a paralympic legacy project between RIBI and the charity WheelPower. The objective of WheelPower is to provide young or newly disabled people with the opportunity to further a sporting goal by providing sports wheelchairs to allow them to compete and possibly become future Paralympians.
Eve Conway said: “We ran wearing Rotary wheels which were four feet and two feet in diameter respectively, to raise our profile among the thousands of people lining the route. We certainly got a lot of attention as the wheels were quite large, although they were not too uncomfortable. We have so far raised around £4,000 but funds are still coming in from online and offline sources so we are still counting.”
It is so rewarding to be helping so many good causes and charities in our local community. Our club is always looking for new ways of helping others and no idea is too small or too large.”
