A charity cycle ride is to take place this summer to raise money for the Grantham Foodbank.

The ride will be held on August 10 and will starting at 7am in front of the Guildhall in Grantham with those taking part cycling 100 miles on a total of ten laps around Grantham.

In a move dubbed ‘the Feeding of the Five Thousand’ the Foodbank, which has supplied crisis food parcels to 2,200 people since opening in July, 2011, is aiming to raise enough money for 5,000 meals, at the rate of a pound per meal.

Phil Cranwell, one of the organisers of the event, said: “It is a case of using the event to publicise the foodbank and the good work it’s doing.”

It is hoped the event will not only raise money but also raise awareness.
