Llan fivesome cycle 50 miles to help Ebola victims

Warren Davies, Andrew Sully and Gwyn Lloyd.

Five intrepid cyclists from the area got on their bikes to raise over £450 for Ebola victims recently.
Warren Davies, Andrew Riley, George Aylward, Gwyn Lloyd and St Collen’s vicar Andrew Sully made a 50-mile round trip from Llangollen to Bala and back.
Warren Davies said: "The weather was actually excellent for November, which really helped as our legs started to feel weary on the way back.

“Ebola is a devastating disease for families in West Africa. However, the solutions to stopping it spreading are incredibly simple. The money raised here will be spent on basic medical equipment, things like gloves and disinfectant.”
He added: “If there is sufficient interest in the future, there are plans to turn this November ride into an annual fundraiser.

“We are just shy of our £500 target and any further donations to this very worthy cause are most welcome at www.justgiving.com/bala-and-back.”
 

* The riders reach their destination near Lake Bala.
