When David Goldie, 4-6 High Street’s former incumbent, told us about his forthcoming Yorkshire boundary bike ride, which him and fellow Rotarians had organised as a fund raiser for the BTRS (Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire) – we jumped at the chance to support them and this incredibly worthy cause.
The 425 mile bike which follows the edge of the entire county from Sheffield in the south to Redcar and Guisborough in the north, is being undertaken by two long standing members of Skipton Rotary Club, 73 year old David and Kevin Wharton (65) along with friends, Ray Cryer (71) and Rich Newall (55), in a bid to raise funds in memory of Skipton Rotary president, John Wright’s daughter Annette, who tragically died of a brain tumour aged just 11 years.
With our signature beer, ‘Goldie’s’ named after David, it seemed only right to donate 10% of its sales from now until the team complete the ride. By way of additional encouragement, we are also offering anyone showing confirmation that they’ve sponsored the ride a complimentary schooner of ‘Goldie’s’!*
The team – whose combined age is a fabulous 260 – hope to complete the challenge in six days, starting on July 14th and finishing Friday July 19, with the money raised going to support vital research being carried out to find a cure for brain tumours, improve clinical outcomes and give support to sufferers and their families.
Everyone who sponsors David and the team are also invited to join them at Alexander’s on July 19th from 5pm for a ‘Welcome Back’ celebration, the perfect opportunity for anyone who has supported the team to collect their complimentary drink.*
The team are aiming to raise a life changing £5000 for BTRS, to sponsor them visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/maureen-wharton
*We are offering a complimentary schooner of Goldie’s or a glass of prosecco or ‘Tom and the Pelaton’, our brand new Ventoux Rouge – to everyone who sponsors the ride. To receive your thank you drink please show a copy of your Just Giving page to one of our team.
