To the coast and back!
T WO friends from S8 are cycling to the seaside and back for a
good cause. Delivery driver Rick
Wheatley and Shaun Massey, of Jordanthorpe, aim to cover almost 200 miles in aid of Weston Park Hospital.
Both men have re-ignited a love of cycling for the challenge and have become fitter to prepare. Shaun has lost weight despite the temptation of baked goodies in his job at Greggs bakery!
Rick and Shaun leave from
the hospital to ride to the
Oasis Bar at Ingoldmells,
where their families, friends
and other supporters will be waiting to greet them.

The next day, the duo will embark on their return ride to Sheffield. Rick said: “The ride will be just under 200 miles and will be a big task for us both, but a task we strongly believe we can complete!”
Rick and Shaun chose the charity as they both have family members who have or have sadly died of cancer.
“We wanted to give something back to the charity for the great work that is done by all at Weston Park,” added Rick.
The pals will have a support driver providing back-up – Glen Smith.

Royal seal of approval
P RINCE Andrew has presented a
local Rotary club with a prestigious award for their super community work.
The award was
presented to Abbeydale
Rotary Club in Sheffield
Cathedral by Prince
Andrew. The
focussed on the club’s
work with Sheffield young artists, but also on the rest of the community work the club does.
A few examples of the work done include working with the pupils at King Egbert’s giving careers advice and doing mock interviews, clearing Himalayan Balsam from local streams, weeds from the ponds at Whirlow and ensuring that Tinsley canal basin stays litter free.
The club has also put together an exhibition for budding artists of all ages to showcase their best paintings.
All Sheffield’s children aged from five to 18 are eligible to submit paintings to the main art exhibition and competition through their schools. The exhibition of their work takes place this year at Ponds Forge when more than 1,000 paintings will be on display. Winners are given lunch in the Lord Mayor’s Parlour and a plaque to celebrate their win. All exhibitors are given a certificate of participation to treasure and to show their parents.
The artwork will also be displayed at Art in the Gardens, the Great Sheffield Art Show, exhibitions in the Town Hall and a special sixth form-only exhibition with examples of career openings for artists by Sheffield companies and colleges. All this is down to the work of Rotary members. More information on the local group from Julia Massey 0114 2817557.
