Local man and Chairman of Southport Hesketh Round Table, Dean Wilson (46) has set members of Southport Hesketh Round Table a challenge to cycle 100 miles from Southport Monument to the National Memorial Arboretum
Dean recently discovered his great grandfather fought at the Somme and Passchendaele and since its 100 years since this battle , he wanted to raise money for the Royal British Legion .
Dean says “We aim to raise 1917 pounds and are very grateful to have received sponsorship from our friends family and local people of over £1000 so far,
It would be wonderful if we could hit our target for the Legion ”
Dean is joined by Dan Hubbard (vice chairman) and Chris Green (Treasurer) in cycling the 100 miles from Southport Monument to the National Memorial arboretum in Staffordshire
Apart from this event every year members of Southport Hesketh Round Table raise thousands of pounds for local good causes through their events (Southport Charity Bonfire and Fireworks at Victoria Park, Mad Dog 10k run and our popular Santa Sleigh). They’ve recently donated over £7000 to local good causes and are looking for local men aged 18-45 to get involved , have fun and raise money for local good causes , message us at facebook , @shrt1199 or email us at email@example.com or see our website www.southport-hesketh.roundtable.co.uk
