Didsbury Good Neighbours (DGN) are raising funds for a volunteer befriending service for older people in the community.

The service will put on weekly activities to combat loneliness and isolation felt by many older people.  To raise money, they will be taking part in the Manchester 100km Cycle Ride on September 3rd. DGN are asking people to either donate to the riders or join the race itself.

Jeff said: “This will be an invaluable service for older people in our community and I hope as many people contribute as possible. 

100km in a day is no mean feat so I wish the riders all the best for September!”

All the details about the ride, and how to donate, can be found on their website – https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/onourbikes4dgn
