Cyclists

Steve Shaw first got in touch earlier in the year looking for a floor for the night when he, along with his brothers, was considering cycling the 970 miles from John O’Groats to Lands End. Riding the epic journey to raise money for the 14th Huddersfield (Marsden) Scout Group, as well as other charities, was nothing new, but, with a combined age of 193 and between them three replacement joints and one more on its way, they deserved a little support. Cherry Flitcroft, Settle Scout Group Chairman, rose to the challenge offering to provide them with not only a bed, but also dinner and breakfast, too! Thanks, Cherry, that’s what Scouting is all about! As a bonus, the ‘Brothers Grimm’ as they are called offered the Settle Scouts sponsor forms so that the Group could piggyback on their ride to raise funds for their own needs. We wish the Scouting brothers well and hope they finish their ride safely.
