2018 Annual Sponsored Charity Bike Ride Update
We have now collected the remaining sponsor forms and along with some of the clubs committee members our chairman Haydn Evans has counted and verified the total amount that was raised from the annual Cefn Albion Football club bike ride that took place on Sunday 26th August 2018. We are delighted to announce that the final total raised was a fantastic £1,100 which our very own Paul Vaughan kindly delivered to this year’s chosen charity which was nightingale house hospice.

Once again a big shout out to Nick Jones who was responsible for organising this year’s event, printing sponsor forms and advertising through posters, social media and the general word of mouth. The village of Cefn Mawr is a tight-knit community and on the day of the bike ride a record breaking 25+ riders which included current players, management and supporters braved awful weather conditions in fancy dress to take on the 20 mile all-round cycle from the Cefn Mawr community Social Club (the legion) in Cefn Mawr up to the Britannia Inn just past Llangollen. During the route we stopped in the Queens Hotel in Cefn Mawr before making our way to the Bridge End in Llangollen via the canal. Whilst in Llangollen we also visited the Bull and the Wynnstay before setting off to the chain bridge hotel and then the Brit. On the way home we stopped in the Abbey Grange hotel, the Sun Trevor and the Telford in Trevor before finishing back at the social club.

It was an enjoyable day which brought smiles to faces and created some great memories for all involved. We would like to thank all the people who bought fancy dress outfits and participated in the ride, the people who kindly sponsored those involved and the people and pubs on route who dug deep and donated via our collection boxes.

We shall look forward to next year’s charity event and we will be visiting all the pubs who kindly donated this year. A big Thank you to Nicky Jones and to everyone who made this year’s charity fancy dress ride a success! Roll on next year!!
