Richard Procter’s Cycle ride for St Michael’s Hospice

6 cyclists who have so far raised £2622 for Saint Michael’s Hospice by cycling from Scarborough to Knaresborough on Saturday 11th July. The cyclists from left to right are :- Graham Wilson, David Leach, Oliver Wilson(16), Richard Procter, Edward Wilson (14) William Wilson (13). The distance of 63 miles was covered in 4 hours and 40 minutes. The event which may become an annual one was conceived by Richard Procter in gratitude to Saint Michael’s Hospice for the wonderful care received by his mother Patricia before passing away in January this year. Donations to this worthy cause may be made by visiting and entering “R-Procter” in the search box.
