Change of gear for cyclists
A BARMY bunch of fundraisers took on a fancy dress tandem bike challenge on the weekend in aid of charity.
Dressed in tutus and other fancy dress, the cyclists were easy to spot on their route from Tetbury to Cirencester on Saturday, May 5.
The event was in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, and was one of many fundraising schemes organised by Diane Stroud in the lead up to her biggest fundraising challenge yet.
Cotswold District Council support officer Diane, 52, will be taking on the 100 km trek along the Great Wall of China in October.
Diane’s mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s two years ago and is now cared for at Hunters Care Home in Cirencester.
The mum-of-two said: "She’s lucky that she can afford such great care but there are so many people who are not in the same position."
So far Diane has raised around £1,400 for Alzheimer’s Society but hopes to raise at least £3,000 to support care and research into the disease.
Diane and her fellow cyclists from Hunters Care Home will be setting off from Tetbury at 12pm, cycling along the A435 and arriving at Cirencester Market Place at around 4pm.
