A BOLTON charity’s main annual fundraising event is asking for help to ensure it keeps cycling to success.

The Lagan’s Foundation Cycle Challenge is now established as a popular annual event in the riding calendar with participants from all around the UK taking part. It takes place on Sunday, April 28, starting and finishing at Rivington and Blackrod High School, with an 8.15am registration and 9am start.

The charity helps families with young children with complex needs, specialising in those with heart defects and feeding problems. It was set up by Carren Bell and husband Barry from Horwich in memory of their daughter Lagan Grant who died at just 15 weeks old from a heart defect.

The cycle event tackles challenging inclines along the way around Rivington, enjoying fabulous views to North Wales, Cheshire ad Blackpool. Cyclists can choose one of three routes. Last year, the event attracted 140 riders and organisers are hoping to increase that number this year
