Inspired by the Olympics, three residents at The Chaseley Trust have decided to embark on their own Olympic fundraiser to help raise money towards the charity’s 75th Anniversary Appeal.

Malcolm, Jamie and Dom are going for gold and competing to see who can cover the furthest distance across a three-month period, using the lower limb cycle in Chaseley’s Activate Gym; the only gym in the area specifically designed for wheelchair users.

Every Thursday throughout August, September and October these inspirational residents will ‘get cycling’ with David, Activate’s Gym Instructor. Their distances will be logged each week and Chaseley will share regular updates via their website and Social Media channels.
