Fun, Learning, and Achievement

09 May 2019

Alberbury YFC has been announced as one of Birmingham Children’s Hospital Top 100 Heroes following their epic fundraising success last year.

The Shropshire club raised over £25,000 after completing a mammoth cycle challenge taking them around the entire perimeter of Wales. In recognition of their achievement club members have been invited to attend Birmingham Children’s Hospital 100 Heroes' Afternoon Tea on Sunday 19 May.

It took the club seven days to complete their charity fundraiser last year, where they covered around 100 miles a day during one of the hottest weeks in June on record.

The mission to raise money for the hospital pushed the riders both physically and mentally as they took on some of the most challenging terrain in the UK.

Melissa Evans from the club said "jelly babies, countless costal tyre changes and the support of family and friends" saw them through the challenge. She added: "It’s an honour to support Birmingham Children’s Hospital, a charity that couldn’t be more deserving.”

The Afternoon tea event will pay tribute to the wonderful fundraisers who have challenged themselves, exceeded expectations and been an inspiration to many, throughout 2018. Alberbury YFC's achievements will also be commemorated on a special red balloon at the front of the hospital for the next 12 months.
