The team of charity bike riding fundraisers, the HEAVY METAL TRUANTS are set for their fifth year cycling from London to Download Festival, aptly naming this years event the ‘Revenge Of The Fifth’.
The Truants will depart London’s Alexandra Palace on June 7th and arrive at Download Festival at midday on June 9th. The ride will be split over three days, giving the riders chance to rest their legs for a while on the 161 mile trip.
Let’s take a look at the three valuable children’s charities who will benefit from this fundraising:
NORDOFF ROBBINS is the largest independent music therapy charity in the UK, dedicated to changing the lives of vulnerable and isolated people. More information can be found on the official website here.
The TEENAGE CANCER TRUST supports young people diagnosed with cancer, so they don’t have to face it alone. More information can be found on the official website here.
CHILDLINE helps young people under the age of 19 in the UK, with any issue they are going through. They provide support via phone, email or one to one counselling. More information can be found on the official website here.
The group have raised £334,000 so far and have a goal of £666,000.
