Haddenham Hillbillies is more than just a cycling club! Each year members' donations contribute to a charity appeal.

Last year, on the fifth anniversary of the death of his wife Jenny, club member Neil Dury raised nearly £2,500 cycling the London Olympic course for the charity Target Ovarian Cancer. A key element of the charity's work is to link with women and the medical profession to help achieve earlier diagnosis.

Haddenham Hillbillies has now generously contributed more to Neil's fund.

Before an evening ride on Tuesday 14th May, starting at The Kings Head, David Finch of the Hillbillies handed over a further £350 for Target Ovarian Cancer.

David said: "Every year since 2012 the Haddenham Hillbillies have been able to donate to a charity close to a member's heart and every few years we undertake a major challenge to raise even more. The next one is planned for 2020."

Neil added, "In addition to being a great group to ride with, their generosity to this important charity is massively appreciated".
