KNOWLE and Dorridge Lions are inviting everyone to join them for a great fundraising day out at Packwood House in Solihull on Sunday, July 11 sponsored by Bannatyne’s Health Club.

Lions secretary Dave Carter said: “Bring your bike and enjoy a ride along the quiet country lanes of Warwickshire for a family Bikeathon and raise funds for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research or pull on your walking boots for a Summer Stroll in aid of Diabetes UK.”

James Walsh, general manager at Bannatyne’s in Solihull, added: “When I was asked if Bannatyne’s would sponsor this event I could see it is just the type of community fundraising we like to support.

“To use a phrase from our boss Duncan Bannatyne, I said “We’re in”. We will certainly be there ourselves and hope that the Lions are successful in attracting lots of walkers and cyclists to raise funds for these worthy causes.”

The Lions hope that record numbers of cyclists will sign up now and get their ride sponsored.

If you don’t ride then take a stroll along the footpaths and canals around Packwood National Trust house, get your efforts sponsored or just make a donation for Diabetes UK.

Registration is essential for both events via the Lions www.KnowleandDorridgeLions.com/fundraising-events webpages or call 08458 33 58 94.
