There is still time to sign up for Guild Care’s Pedal Along the Prom

Guild Care’s annual Pedal along the Prom will return to Worthing seafront on Sunday, April 14, for a fun day out for the whole family, complete with food, drink and activities.

The cycle ride along the promenade, organised by the Worthing-based charity, will feature a five or ten-mile return route setting off from the promenade, opposite Marine Gardens, at 10.30am and welcomes all ages and abilities to join in all the fun on the prom.

“So all you cycling enthusiasts out there, why not grab your bikes and enjoy a spring’s morning cycle ride along the prom, guarantee your family a great day out and raise money for your local charity at the same time.”

Fundraising is essential for a charity like Guild Care. It not only raises money to fund their lifeline services but it also serves as further opportunity to help spread the word far and wide, informing the community about the importance of what they do.

Guild Care provides more than 30 services to people from birth to old age living in Worthing and the surrounding areas, from dementia services, support for adults and children with learning disabilities and home care to providing carers with a much-needed break.

Many of the charity’s services aim to reduce isolation and support older people to live independently and well for longer.

Here are some ways how your sponsorship could make a difference:

£20 could pay for four children with learning disabilities from our Ashdown Centre to go swimming.

£50 could pay for someone living with dementia to enjoy an afternoon outing, providing a much-needed break for their carers.

£107 could run one of our services for adults with learning disabilities for one day.

So, if you are after a fun cycle ride for the whole family or even an excuse to do some exercise while helping to support a local charity, then please come along to Guild Care’s Pedal on the Prom.
