'Tis the season to fundraise - so saddle up and squeeze on a red hat for a Santa Cycle

100 cycling Santas in Devon raise money for cancer care - and more rides are planned across the country

‘Tis the season to fundraise  - and 100 cycling Santas in Devon have been doing just that - cycling from Exmouth to Topsham yesterday to raise funds for the local cancer charity FORCE.

FORCE (Friends of the Oncology and Radiotherapy Centre, Exeter), uses its funding to purchase state of the art equipment to improve cancer treatment in the area.

Sarah Daniels, FORCE head of fundraising, told the Exeter Express: “This event is a real family affair with the emphasis firmly on festive fun to get everyone who takes part into the Christmas spirit”.
