A group of cyclists from Corby Glen are gearing up for a 20 mile cycle ride at Rutland Water on April 23.

Simon Jessop, Iain Harber, Ryan Ebdale and Mark Lamming will join more than 1000 experienced riders on The Dare 2B Rutland Cicle Tour to help raise funds for the Corby Glen Play Park Fund.

The total raised from the cycle event, will go towards the £5,500 which has already been raised by the Corby Glen community in aid of a new play park for the village.

Amy Roberts, who has been helping to lead the fundraising said: “Our original target was only £2,300, and since then we’ve exceeded that amount thanks to the amazing response from the community, including the generosity of local residents and local businesses.

“Instead of stopping, we just thought lets keep going. The more we can raise, the more we can set out to do when the project takes off.

“It’s going to be a tough challenge for the boys, but one they have taken on to help raise as much as possible towards the play park for the children.

“It would be great if everyone could dig deep to help them along the way.”

Alongside the cycle challenge and many other fundraising events and challenges which have been held in aid of the play park, a big fundraiser will be taking place in June. On Sunday, June 12, from 11am to 4pm. There will be The Big Lunch and Queen’s Celebrations in the Market Place, Corby Glen. Highlights will include a Lancaster flypast, fire engine, face-painting, bake-off and cake-decorating, with visitors encouraged to bring their own picnics and plenty of children’s activities.
