L-R Centre North West Air Ambulance’s Gillian Edwards, The Neuro Muscular Centre’s Emily Swinerd and St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice Community Fundraiser Jessica Wilkes-Reading.

The world-famous motorsport course at Little Budworth, Tarporley, is opening its gates to the public for a FREE family fun day and inviting families and fundraisers to sign up for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cycle on the hallowed tarmac of the track, which is 60 years old this year, in aid of the hospice.
The family fun day, set to feature an array of entertainment for visitors young and old, and the ‘Get On Your Bike’ event are being held in aid of St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice and a number of other local causes.

St Luke’s Community and Corporate Fundraiser Jessica Wilkes-Reading commented:
“What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than riding through all the famous twists and turns of one of motorsport’s most iconic tracks.
“From 8.30am the course will be open for the ‘Speed Demons’ event for cycling enthusiasts who want to ride as fast as they like around the course and from 10.30am until 5pm, it will be opened up to families.
“We’re looking for as many fundraisers as possible to take up the challenge of cycling round the track during what is set to be a fantastic event packed with family fun and entertainment.”

The hospice’s Luke the Bus, a former London Routemaster bus luxuriously restored by long-term St Luke’s supporter Bentley Motors, will also be attending the event.
