The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on the people of West Sussex to help support a fundraising cycle ride on July 28, at the Goodwood Motor Circuit.
The ride has been running for an impressive 21 years, and this year the BHF is hoping it will raise at least £10,000 to help fund life saving research into heart and circulatory diseases.
The iconic 2.4 mile track will be open from 10am to 5pm and will be free from motorised vehicles. The event is open to cyclists of all ages and abilities, and volunteers are needed to help keep participants safe, to support registration and to give out medals once riders are finished.
Local BHF fundraising manager Hannah Miller said: “We’re really looking forward to the bike ride at Goodwood motor circuit! It’s set to be a really fantastic day and we hope to see lots of people coming together on two or three wheels to join help us beat heartbreak from heart and circulatory diseases. Events like this simply couldn’t take place without the support of dedicated BHF volunteers, so if you are interested in helping out and can spare at least three hours on the day – do get in touch for more information.”
According to the latest BHF estimates, there are nearly 15,000 people in Chichester alone living with the burden of heart and circulatory disease, with far more across the wider region. Funds raised from events like Goodwood can make a real difference, helping to fund research into the causes, preventions and treatments of these conditions.
