TWO employees of The Cornish Bakery in Lyme Regis are taking part in a sponsored cycle ride to eight branches of the company to raise money for the RNLI.
It’s all part of the company’s commitment to support the local community.
Store manager Chris Homer and his assistant, Lizzie Reynolds, are currently undertaking a 163-mile cycle, broken down into four legs, starting with Dorchester to Sidmouth (via West Bay and Lyme Regis), Sidmouth to Torquay, Torquay to Totnes (via Dartmouth) and Totnes to Bideford.
Neither of them are keen cyclists, or have ridden bikes for several years, but they wanted to do. something worthy of a challenge for a good cause.
Chris and Lizzie have already got started, with the final two legs to be carried out on Friday, May 13 and Tuesday, May 17.
A collection tin for donations to the RNLI can be found on the counter of the Lyme Regis shop in Broad Street,, and you can also make donations at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/cornishbakerylymeregis
