The organiser of Rugby Bikeathon is appealing for people to return sponsorship money.

Janet Haynes MBE praised everyone who took in the last event in June, which raises money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

She said: “Could anyone with outstanding sponsor money please return it to me as it’s now overdue.”

Janet, who lives in Princethorpe, has been the driving force behind the event for 20 years, but will not be organising another one.

She added: “I’ve enjoyed every minute.

“I’d also like to thank generous shoppers who gave a recent collection at Sainsbury’s. It raised £1,566 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma.”

If you need to know more about returning sponsorship, telephone Janet on 01926 632258.
