AFC Telford United Foundation Manager and The Mayor of Great Dawley Town Ian Preece has announced that he will be cycling from Dawley to Dover to help raise funds for Dulcie’s Neuroblastoma Journey and Severn Hospice.
Ian Preece will be cycling from the Captain Webb Monument located on the High Street in Dawley to the Captain Webb Monument located on the Marine Parade in Dover on Sunday 2nd October.
Our Foundation Manager is hoping to raise funds for two great causes. Dulcie’s Neuroblastoma Journey and Severn Hospice. Both of which are close to Ian’s heart.
“As part of my fundraiser for this year, I wanted to do something different. That’s why I’ve decided to take up the challenge to cycle over 270 miles, monument to monument, from my hometown of Dawley, all the way to Dover; the place where Captain Matthew Webb set off his iconic challenge of becoming the first cross channel swimmer. Dulcie’s story has touched the hearts of the whole local community, and I would like to do my part to help Dulcie as much as possible.”
“Severn Hospice also lies extremely close to my heart. I’ve personally experienced the support when they looked after my sister when she had a terminal illness, and I know it’s been a rock to many residents in the area who have had ill family members”
