100 miles to mark 100 years

LOCAL man and Chairman of Southport Hesketh Round Table, Dean Wilson (46) has set members of Southport Hesketh Round Table a challenge to cycle 100 miles from Southport Monument to the National Memorial Arboretum  Dean recently discovered his great grandfather fought at the Somme and Passchendaele and since its 100 years since this battle , he wanted to raise money for the Royal British Legion .  Dean says:- "We aim to raise 1917 pounds and are very grateful to have received sponsorship from our friends family and local people of over ₤1000 so far, It would be wonderful if we could hit our target for the Legion "

You can show your support via donating on his Just Giving page. Dean is joined by Dan Hubbard (vice chairman) and Chris Green (Treasurer) in cycling the 100 miles from Southport Monument to the National Memorial arboretum in Staffordshire. The challenge starts at 8.00am, on Saturday, 23 September 2027 and they hope to arrive in time for the Sunday Service, at 11.00am, on Sunday, 24 Sep 2017.

Apart from this event every year members of Southport Hesketh Round Table raise thousands of pounds for local good causes through their events (Southport Charity Bonfire and Fireworks at Victoria Park, Mad Dog 10k run and our popular Santa Sleigh). They've recently donated over ₤7000 to local good causes and are looking for local men aged 18 to 45 to get involved via visiting the Southport Hesketh Round Table's website.
