Mayor gets on his bike to help local charity cycle to the moon!

Brighton MayorBrighton Mayor, Cllr Pete West, has offered to help local charity, Headway Hurstwood Park, cycle to the moon this summer as part of their Lunar Cycle Challenge.

Chief Executive, Michele Fleming said “We are delighted to be one of the mayor’s chosen charities this year and even more thrilled that he will be helping us clock up the miles. It is 252,088 miles to the moon and if we can raise just 1p for every mile it would be a fantastic boost to our helping people in East Sussex who are affected by brain injury.”

His Worship Cllr Pete West met up with the Headway team at the recent Cyclefest event in Brighton where the team were encouraging other cyclists to join the Lunar Challenge.

The Mayor said ‘It’s my pleasure to support Headway in their excellent work, I’ve been so impressed by their passion and dedication; so I am delighted to be able to take part … in fact I’m over the moon!’
