Pedal Power for Kidderminster Schoolteacher Raising Cash for Alzheimer’s Society

Crazy? she might be, but local teacher Sarah Roberts from Holy Trinity School and Sixth Form Centre in Kidderminster will take on her biggest cycling challenge for charity to date, as training takes a gear up ready for Vélo Birmingham on Sunday 24th September. Having only recently taken-up cycling as a way to avoid running injuries, Sarah is now smitten and a member of Stourbridge Cycling Club. She cycles regularly, even riding to and from home in Kinver to Holy Trinity and back, whatever the weather. Music teacher Sarah explained: “I have always loved a sporting challenge and ran the London Marathon for charity way back in 1985 whilst still a teenager! “Having bought my first ever bike exactly a year ago, I have found a whole new world. New friends, amazing countryside, new pubs and cafes, and even new muscles! Taking part in this 100-mile challenge through gorgeous countryside, including through my own beloved village of Kinver, will be amazing and having received confirmation this week that I would be riding on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society, I am absolutely delighted, if slightly daunted!” Riding for the Alzheimer’s charity, many of Sarah’s friends' parents suffer with the disease and live daily with the effects and impact dementia has on their family units. The closed road route starts on Broad Street, Birmingham and will take the 15,000 riders out from the city and through picturesque counties of Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire before returning to the finish line on Broad Street. Added Sarah: “So far I’ve raised £90 of the £400 target I am required to raise, so I need all the help and support I can get. I have a JustGiving page, so please, please, please if you can, support me and donate, no matter how small. By doing so, you are helping and supporting the wonderful work of the Alzheimer’s Society.” Please support Sarah and donate via:
