Chippenham and District Wheelers Support WILSAR

22 May 2014  |  News  |  ,

Thursday 22nd May 2014. Each year, Chippenham and District Wheelers support a charity in the local area for the period of one year. Anything they do fundraising-wise in that period will be given to one beneficiary.

We are proud to announce that this year Chippenham Wheelers chose WILSAR and we are very grateful as we can only continue to operate thanks to public donations and Team fundraising. Last year they supported Wiltshire Air Ambulance – Air Support Unit and raised over £1,500 for them.

We look forward to meeting you at some of your events later this year.
