BRIGHTER Futures is looking for people to hop in the saddle and ride for the Great Western Hospital charity in next month’s Prudential RideLondon.

The eighth RideLondon was supposed to take place on August 15 and 16 but had to be cancelled.

Organisers are still encouraging people to get on their bikes, scooters or skateboards and raise money for charity and Brighter Futures is calling on the people of Swindon to get involved.

The charity’s donor development manager Lisa Utting said: “During lockdown I’ve found that I haven’t done as much exercise as I usually would and this is a good opportunity for me to get back on my bike.

“I took part in the Ride for Radiotherapy in 2017 but haven’t really cycled since, so this will be a great way for me to push myself and raise funds.

“Our staff have worked so hard this year and we really want to encourage people to continue to show support by raising as much money as we can.”

People can ride their own distance or set targets such as 19, 46 or 100 miles.

To register for the ride visit the My Ride London website and choose Brighter Futures GWH as your charity.
