...we raised enough for a £350.00 rebuild racing bike.

A big thank you going out to all that supported and came along to the CCH Fund Raiser Party at the Concorde Centre Youth Hub last Friday evening. It was a lot of fun with good Caribbean food (thanks to Hackney Homes) a right mix of music plus BASS, volleyball, table tennis, hoola hooping, and MC free-styling.
A special mention must go to Interlinkx CiC staff; Kevin Cabey & Sulaymaan Altamash who helped me as sound hands moving the MiHS system to and from the venue. I had a bad back - honest! Thanks and praise is also due for staff and management at the Concorde Centre & Hackney Marsh Partnership for facilitating this event.

Including the match funding from an anonymous donation and with the support of Hub Velo I'm pleased to say that we raised enough for a £350.00 rebuild racing bike. This will be number one of the 'fleet' to be available for training and racing early in the new year. A date for the next fund raiser event No.2 with added 'wow factor' will be publicised in due course.
This show is expected to include an exclusive film premier from the CC Hackney production crew that is James, Daniel & Bjorn.

Anyone interested in volunteering as part of the next event management team? Do contact me: keir@cyclingclubhackney.co.uk and/or our new CCH social secretary Mike Mooney.
