We would like to welcome back the Leeds RAG’s Pedal to Prague team from their trip. They have now completed the challenge and raised £26,638.99!

When returning to the UK the leaders all agreed that it was one of the hardest but most fun challenges they had ever done. They (and we) are so proud of all the cyclists and overwhelmed with how much they have managed to raise!

Jen Aspinall said: “The team set a target of £14,000 and have gone over and above in every way. The money they have raised will make such a huge impact to families facing childhood cancer. They should be so proud of themselves and every penny they have raised. I am completely overwhelmed by what they have done.”

 

We are delighted that the team have been shortlisted in the top 3 nominees for the “Team Effort of the Year” award at the Candlelighters Awards.

 

Congratulations Team Pedal to Prague!
