GET IN THE SADDLE FOR TOUR DE MANC!

GET IN THE SADDLE FOR TOUR DE MANC!

Cyclists of all abilities are being urged to raise money for Broughton House’s Veterans Care Village by taking part in the Tour de Manc Sportive riding event in May.

The event, now in its third year, will take place on Sunday, May 6.

There are three rides, and participants can raise cash for Broughton House by being sponsored by their relatives, friends and colleagues.

All of the money they raise will go towards our new multi-million pound Veterans Care Village. Work on the scheme is due to start in the next few months.

The Tour de Manc Sportive uses cycling as a force for good, by encouraging people to get active while helping worthy causes.

The 100-mile Full-Manc challenge is for experienced riders which takes in all 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester. It includes steep climbs providing panoramic views, as well as downhill sections.

The 100km Half-Manc is aimed at occasional riders and the Every-Manc event is for disabled riders.

Julie Verne, development director at Broughton House, said: “The Tour de Manc Sportive is a great event which provides the opportunity for cyclists to raise much-needed funds for our Veterans Care Village.

“We hope as many people as possible sign up to be part of Team Broughton House to show their support for us.”
