Hospice in the Weald is a charity local to BBS’ Head Office in Lamberhurst, Kent. The charity provides support for people with terminal illnesses in the Kent and East Sussex area. No charge is made for these services which are provided on the basis of need rather than ability to pay. The Hospice relies on donations to fund their work and needs to raise over £7 million each year to provide their vital services to not only patients, but their families and carers as well.
BBS is delighted to, once again, be sponsoring this annual cycling event which took place on Sunday, 7th May and brought together over 260 cyclists.
Many congratulations to all who took part and well done to Alex Burgham and his team for organising such a great event!
