This #FundraisingFriday we’d like to say a BIG thank you to the Aberdovey Bike Ride for donating £3,400 to CLAPA, and to Rosie Biggs who has signed up to take on the London Marathon in aid of CLAPA.
Rosie, who’s beautiful daughter Poppy was born with a unilateral complete cleft, will be running the London Marathon come April. “The support and guidance CLAPA has in place for parents and children born with these conditions is amazing. I feel so moved and privileged to run the London Marathon for them. It is obviously so close to my heart and I am running for all the families out there who have been through or are about to go through the Cleft journey! And, of course, all of the beautiful children, who happen to have been born with a cleft lip and/or palate.” To find out more about Poppy and Rosie, and to donate, visit Rosie’s JustGiving page.
The Aberdovey Bike Ride is an annual cycling event from Wolverhampton to Aberdovey on the welsh coast. It first started in 1994 when police officers from Wolverhampton made the 104 mile journey to raise money for local charities, and has since raised over half a million pounds for good causes.
In 2015, thanks to 600 cyclists, this scenic 100+ miles charity bike ride raised over £120,000! We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the charities. THANK YOU!
