Eighty-mile challenge for Iddesleigh charity

By Sally Shipton in Charity

MEMBERS from Newton St Cyres Young Farmers Club have completed an 80-mile cycle challenge, which passed through Hatherleigh, to raise funds for Iddesleigh-based charity Farms for City Children.

Reg Ayre, Emma Davie and Georgina Davie (pictured left) cycled 80-miles from Barnstaple to Exmouth as part of the Coast2Coast challenge organised by the charity and also to celebrate the club’s 80th anniversary.

The trio faced rain and wind throughout the day, but were pleased to have completed the route which passed through Hatherleigh, Winkleigh, Thelbridge, Sandford, Upton Pyne and Exeter in seven hours and 47 minutes.
