NEWS IN BRIEF: Get pedalling to help research

Have your say

A CHILDREN’S charity is seeking South Yorkshire cyclists to sign up for a bike ride through the Peak District this summer.

The event on June 10 will raise money for Action Medical Research. Participants can cycle 100 miles or tackle a shorter 60-mile route near Mam Tor and Froggatt, the Hope and Goyt Valleys and the Derbyshire Dales. Visit to register.

Well attended

MORE than 4,500 children from 150 schools across South Yorkshire have attended a Lifewise Centre at Hellaby, Rotherham, since it opened last September. The centre is run by South Yorkshire Police and the county’s fire service. It runs sessions on crime, fire, road and internet safety.

Charity show

A FUNDRAISING night of live music will raise cash for two charities. The Asperger’s Awareness night takes place at West Street Live in Sheffield from 7pm on Thursday. Entry is free but donations would be appreciated for Asperger’s Children and Carers Together and ASD Friendly.

You need wheels

TEAMS of 10 people are needed to raise funds for young people with disabilities. The Sheffield Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Centre is inviting teams to travel across the region on June 23 using as many different forms of transport as they can. Call 01405 780580.

All White on night
