Bike riders have raised £675,000 for a charity providing out-of-school hours activities for Jewish children with disabilities in London.
Participants in the annual Bike4KEF on Sunday raised the charity’s highest total yet, as 200 riders observed new coronavirus-related Government guidance by not riding in the normal peloton style. Instead, riders were given a four-hour window to begin the ride, in groups of up to six, with socially-distanced pit stops.
Organiser Mordche Werjuka said: “To see record numbers take part, and so much support along the route, was really inspiring. This year has been all about innovation for KEF, we have had to come up with new ways to support our service users during lockdown and now we had to come up with new ways to deliver Bike4KEF.”
