End the cycle of abuse

Cambridge MP David Howarth is helping the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) to launch its Big Bike Ride 2007.

The NSPCC Big Bike Ride takes place from 29 June to 1 July, when people across the UK will be organising and taking part in cycle events to raise funds for the children's charity, and David is lending a hand with the publicity in order to recruit cycle ride organisers across Cambridge.

David said:

"Last year thousands of people took part in hundreds of Big Bike Ride events up and down the country and raised much needed funds for the NSPCC to give children someone to turn to - please help to make the 2007 Big Bike Ride even more successful and make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children in this area."

"It's easy to take part in the Big Bike Ride and Cambridge is the ideal place to organise a ride as there are so many cycle paths. Even if you can't ride a bike you can still take part - you could contact your local gym and ask to use an exercise bike - as long as you're on a bike, you'll be on the Big Bike Ride."
