Clinton Devon Estates completes the 100 mile Nello Cycle Challenge
FORCE believe that those diagnosed with cancer deserve the best possible treatment and professional support close to home. Since 1987, the charity has been funding local research and buying equipment to improve patient care.
They offer physical, emotional, psychological and practical support for those who need it from their Cancer Support and Information Centre in the grounds of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
John Varley, Estates Director and member of the Clinton Nello team said: “The Nello Challenge is a tough event, but is entirely worthwhile when you know it is for such a great cause and one that supports people within our community at a real time of need.
“I would like to thank all of our generous sponsors and those who came to support us on the day. I’m proud of the team for agreeing to take on the challenge and for their hard work and commitment to completing the course, despite the slippery roads from recent rainfall.”
The Clinton Devon Estates team has so far raised over £1,200 of their £1,500 target. You can still support the team and help them reach their total by donating via their fundraising page here.
The first Nello cycle took place in 2000 in the memory of Topsham resident and cycling enthusiast Nello Ghezzo, who sadly lost his life to cancer. The chosen route was one of his favourites thanks to the stunning scenery, challenging hills and exciting downhill sections. You can read more about the Nello here.
