Wheels in motion for Clifton

Donations from all around the world have been flooding in for Clifton Cricket Club's sponsored 170 mile bike ride which will take place over NatWest CricketForce weekend.

The six riders, including former Derby County Chairman and past Clifton President Peter Gadsby, will leave Lord's on Friday March 30 and hope to reach Clifton at 1pm two days later.

So far, more than £1,500 has been pledged on the club's JustGiving site with further donations from local businesses taking the total close to the initial target of £3,000.

The funds will go towards a new pavilion for the club while all Gift Aid contributions, currently close to £500, will be donated to the Coronary Care Unit at The Royal Derby Hospital.

Donations can still be made by clicking here or by texting CCCR12 £10 to 70700.
