Halstead: Mums conquer annual charity challenge
1:00pm Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
A group of determined mums have taken on their latest challenge for charity.
On Sunday Selina Hull, Teresa Challis, Rebecca Vickery, Tracy Bacon, Lisa Dove and Sue Freear rode 60 miles from London to Brighton in what has become an annual fundraising tradition.
For the past five years they have picked a different challenge, such as sky dives and marathons, and are next year planning to cycle from London to Paris.
Personal trainer Mrs Freear, 36, of De Vere Road, Earls Colne, who had only given birth to baby Pearl six weeks ago, said: “Me and Tracy decided to do something and it just sort of escalated and every year more people join us.
“It was going to be London to Paris this year before I found out we were expecting Pearl, so we decided to do the London to Brighton.”
The mums overcame flat tyres, accidents, sun and rain on the day to raise more than £1,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Essex Air Ambulance, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Make a Wish Foundation.
