John and Marje Summerfield, have completed their gruelling bike ride from Liverpool to Chester and back to Liverpool!!
On the 3rd July
Jonh & Marje Completed the 54 Mile event, It took them just over 5 hours to complete the ride…
Marje, aged 66, first completed the bike ride in 2008 for the Warrington Association for Special Children.
John, aged 62 and a former engineer, then followed suit in the 2009 Liverpool-Chester-Liverpool Bike Ride for the same cause.
This led to the pair attempting it together last year for Stepping Stones Nigeria, a UK charity that defends the rights of children in the Niger Delta region.
Over the years they have raised £1,800 for their chosen causes and they hope to continue their success this summer.
Marje said: “Supporting these charities is extremely rewarding.
“It’s an enjoyable event and there’s always a good atmosphere. The return journey is uphill but the adrenaline keeps you going.”
John and Marje will celebrate 40 years of marriage this August. They have one son Lee, aged 36, and two grandchildren Louis and Frankie, aged nine and four.
From everybody at The Shannon Bradshaw Trust we would like to say a massive thank you and Well done!!
Without people like John and Marge the charity could not exist or help children and families.
