Mark Russell, from The Team Chongi Academy, a local Gym based in Crewe, is taking part in a 55 mile charity cycle ride, on Sunday 25th May from 9am – 1pm and would urgently like your help to fill a trolley full of food (instead of donating money) in return for his efforts.
“I have been asked to step in at the 11th hour as one of the original riders could no longer take part. It’s not my usual form of exercise, as our team tends to stick to gym based cardio and Mixed Martial Arts, but I relish a challenge at the best of times and I know that my fitness levels won’t let me down on the open road”.
“Instead of asking for financial donations, I would like people to show their support by donating food for the local Food Bank – St Paul’s Pantry – who are based in High Town and help local people at a time when they need a little extra support”.
They will always welcome non- perishable goods such as tins, cereal, rice, pasta, dried lentils and beans, cartons of UHT milk, dried fruit and unsalted nuts, as well as things like bread sticks and treats including chocolate.
“So what better way to spend an afternoon of exercise than in the saddle, keeping fit and helping a local charity which provides local individuals and families with immediate emergency food to support them at a time of crisis”.
The Team Chongi Academy will be collecting suitable food donations throughout the week.
These can be dropped off at the gym on Eaton Street, Crewe during class times.

Donated items will be passed on to The Reverend Rob Wykes for use at St Paul’s Pantry, Hightown, Crewe, CW1 BBY. Tel: 01270586186.
