OUR SUPPORTERS
Get your colleagues and friends to sponsor you!
We really hope many of you will be willing to take on the ride as a sponsored challenge and help us to reach our fundraising targets. If every rider was to raise at least their entry cost again through sponsorship or a donation, the extra amount we can raise will be significantly different! This is a non-profit charity event: all proceeds raised will go directly to the Salisbury and District Samaritans and we hope that many riders, in addition to their entry fee, will be encouraged to seek their own sponsorship to support our cause. Its easy to set up a sponsors page - just click here
