Plea to leave cycle route signs in place


After postponing their important fund raising cycle challenge, Iain Rennie Hospice is appealing to the public to leave the route signs in place until after the rescheduled event takes place on Sunday April 7.

The annual fund raiser, with an option of three cycle routes, was due to take place on Saturday but due to the extremely cold weather it was cancelled.

Gillian Barnett, Director of Fundraising and Marketing said: “We would now like to appeal to the public for their help and understanding in leaving our signs in place until after the event takes place .

“We have already had problems with someone taking down signs on quite a long section of the route. The cost of replacing the signs and the many hours of our time is quite significant and to ensure as much money as possible from the event goes to patient care, it’s really important that the signs are left in place. We will remove all of them within two days of the event taking place .”

Television personality Fern Britton, a supporter of the challenge, unfortunately cannot make the new date.

All the original timings and other arrangements for the day will be the same. Anyone registered for the event is asked to email to confirm whether you can take part on the new date.
