Team story

[p][/p][p][/p][lt]h1[gt][b]THIS PAGE IS NOW CLOSED - PLEASE SEARCH FOR SAMSRIDE 2016[/b][lt]/h1[gt][p][/p][p]We re organising a charity cycle sportive in aid of the Salisbury and District Samaritans on Sunday May 18th 2015 and we hope to have over 800 riders participating. [b]See our website at www.samsride.co.uk.[/b][/p] [p]However, cycling is not for everyone and many people have asked if they can make a donation instead (or in addition!)[/p] [p]The Salisbury and District Samaritans cover a geographical catchment area approximately from Andover to Salisbury and across to Warminster.  Our branch costs £70,000 per year to run and we need to raise much of that ourselves to keep our phone lines open and to recruit volunteers to provide our service. The Samaritans are a charity dedicated to supporting those unfortunate to be in need of emotional support and we provide this by phone, text, email and face to face meetings. Our organisation is entirely run by volunteers.[/p] [p]Thank you for considering us for support - it is greatly appreciated. Please pass on details of the event to anyone who might like to join us on May 17th - riders and supporters all welcome![/p]

Dear Matthew and the gang. What a great day you organised for us all. The Fat 5 had an epic day, and although a little tired today, it was well worth it. I know that organising any event is hard word work, your endeavours made for a superb event. Spert
