Rees Astley Chairty Bike Ride.

We consider ourselves reasonably lucky to have our health and be in a position of relative comfort and we have reached that age where we would like to give something back to those who are less fortunate.

We also want to have some fun along the way whilst achieving a personal goal which is challenging but not stupid. Hence this September we have decided to cycle Italy for charity! welcome to "Mike & Steve's Tour of Tuscany".

Derwen College students to benefit from a £2000 prize.

Following a competition launched by leading Insurer Aviva in April of this year, Mike Gardner, a Director at local Insurance Brokers - Rees Astley, submitted a bid for a share of the prize fund on behalf of Derwen College under the Supporting Health and Disability for all Ages category.

In September Mike learned that his submission had been successful and, along with Linda Butler and Paul Crosby from Friends of the Derwen, received an invitation to attend the Finale in London to collect the prize fund.

Commenting on the award, Mike said he felt Derwen College were a worthy cause because of the invaluable work undertaken by the charity to the enormous benefit of the community.

The £2,000 awarded will go towards improvements to the college's Garden Centre initiative including a new glasshouse to assist students in the development of their horticultural skills.
