A team from dental equipment company, A-dec, is peddling for charity in the infamous Coast2Coast bike ride this month.
The route – across the Pennines from Whitehaven to Tynemouth – covers 150 miles over three days and the cyclists are raising funds for dental charity, Bridge2Aid, as well as other UK fundraising organsations.
Bridge2Aid is A-dec’s partner charity that carries out oral health care work in the Mwanza region in Tanzania.
The team includes Charlotte Cligg and her partner Ben, Jo Gamble, Stacey Roberts, Tracey McCulloch and husband David, Brian Anderson and wife Sarah, Ashley Woodruff, Ciaran Hynes, and Charlie Cope.
They will be supported by Sarah Treble and Eugene O’Malley who all hope to complete the bike ride, setting out on 29 April.
Their target is to raise more than £7,500 for Bridge2Aid, NSPCC, MS Society, Breast Cancer Campaign and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
Bridge2Aid work in Tanzania, providing access to emergency dentistry – the largest but most under-resourced healthcare need – in the rural areas and work with the disabled and people affected by leprosy at Bukumbi Care Centre.
A-dec have had a close supporting relationship with Bridge2Aid for many years, offering equipment donations and raising funds for the charity in various events and tasks.
