THE second annual “Tour de Kenton”, a fun cycling event, was held recently, with R1 000 raised for charity.
“Entry qualifications are simply that riders must be young people (over 18) who enjoy making fools of themselves and also have strong livers!” said Brigid(correct) Mackay of the Kenton-on-Sea Rotary Club.
Last year’s Tour de Kenton was the first ride to raise money for charity, and the organisers plan to make this an annual fundraising event from now on.
The money raised was donated to the Rotary Club to be used in the RI Polio Plus programme, an international Rotary project aimed at totally eradicating polio throughout the world, Mackay said.
Kenton Rotary president Colin Armstrong received the donation from cyclists Simon Wallis and Peter McNaughton.
