Ride for Helen Update

Chris is supporting our the annual Helen Rollason Cancer Charity Ride for Helen – Sunday 10 May, 2015 – by signing a cycling jersey for our competition. Any rider raising £100 or more in sponsorship for our charity will be entered into the prize draw to win the framed jersey.
