KEEN cyclists in Chard, Ilminster and Crewkerne are needed to help raise funds for vulnerable children.

Charity Action for Children are running a 100-mile ride from London to Surrey on Sunday, August 10.

Event fund-raiser Laura Hanratta, said: “With the roads closed to traffic the race is a unique opportunity to cycle in the capital and your chance to follow the same course as the Olympic greats.”

The deadline for registering your place is Friday 9 May and those willing to fundraise for the charity will be offered a guaranteed place for £45 and people need to raise a minimum of £650 in sponsorship.
