    More than 260 cyclists hit the roads in support of Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice for the Starley Sportive cycle ride in 2018. The event initially raised £4,500; but the total has been boosted by a further £2,500 due to private sponsorship for some riders, taking the overall amount to over £7000. This amount is increasing as more sponsorship comes in. The costs to support one child for one week at Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice totals £4200 and this was our goal for the event. It’s amazing to have exceeded this amount! THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED SEE YOU ALL AT NEXT YEARS STARLEY SPORTIVE.
