As National Bike Week starts it is timely to remember that Whitchurch retained firefighter, Richard Belcher, is continuing to seek sponsorship for his intrepid cycle/golf challenge which starts in exactly one month’s time.

Richard is taking part in the Open Road Challenge to raise funds for a number of charities – Cancer Research, the British Heart Foundation and Naomi House.

He will set off by cycle from Carnoustie Golf Course in Scotland on July 19th, the to visit all the current Open Championship courses.
Accompanied by this three brothers, the 40-year old will have the added the bonus of playing the 1st hole on each course, finishing at Royal St George’s in Kent ten days later.
