Scouting for Girls sell bikes for sick kids

Three members of Scouting for Girls took the saddle in aid of WellChild last weekend, cycling from London to Brighton on second-hand chopper bikes.


Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Pete Ellard left for their 60 mile journey from London on Sunday 29th August at 10am from Wandsworth Park and arrived in Brighton at 4pm on Monday 30th August. Upon arrival in Brighton they played an intimate acoustic gig at Komedia, all in aid for WellChild.

Now you have the opportunity of owning one of the three bikes ridden by the lads on their journey, plus one spare bike they took with them, as they are being sold on Ebay to raise more money for WellChild.

WellChild is the national charity for sick children and provides practical help for children and their families. It is funded solely by the people of the UK and Scouting For Girls are official ambassadors of the charity. The Wellchild nurses work in towns and cities across the UK with families as they deal with the consequences of serious illness and complex conditions.

Lead singer Roy said; "No one has ever attempted riding choppers from London to Brighton before, so we are over the moon! We ache all over, but it was worth every minute as we have raised thousands for WellChild. We are now going to auction the lucky choppers off for WellChild so get bidding on Ebay!"

Colin Dyer from WellChild said: “We couldn’t be more grateful to Roy, Greg and Pete for choosing to support WellChild in this incredible way.

"The fact that the challenge and concert has been totally the band’s idea is just amazing and I would like to thank everyone who has supported them along the way.”
