POWER PLEAS charity for Isle of Man End to End mountain bike challenge
Wolverhampton Mountain Biker Joe Deans cycled 38 gruelling miles across the Isle of Man "End to End" mountain bike challenge in September and raised £210 for the Wolverhampton wheelchair charity POWER PLEAS to go towards a trike for a disabled child. Joe will present the cheque to James Padfield at 4pm on Tuesday 22nd November at Aldersley Stadium. James was the inspiration for Joe and he has triked over 100 miles in his trike. Sarah, James' Mother says
"The trike given to James by POWER PLEAS has been life-changing and is an integral part of our family life. Where we go, the Trike goes too! "
The presentation will take place at Aldersley, arguably the home of Wolverhampton Cycling and James followed it with a celebratory lap of honour round the track, who knows who will win in the post-presentation challenge!
James did not hold on to the cheque for very long as Paula Davies, treasurer of POWER PLEAS, on hand to take it away and help to pay for a trike, just ordered, for a Wolverhampton 3 year old who desperately needs a trike to aid her development. We hope that she will get it before Christmas.
