Brent Knoll villagers to hold fundraising cycle ride in memory of Chris

A charity cycle ride is to be held next month in memory of a Brent Knoll man who died after losing a three-year battle with a lung condition.

Chris Evans, who lived in the area for 25 years, passed away two years ago while awaiting a double lung transplant.

Now, his family and friends in the village are organising a bike ride, starting from outside The Red Cow pub on July 14th at 11am, to raise money for The British Lung Foundation.

The 26-mile route will take cyclists across the Somerset Levels to Godney, returning to The Red Cow for a barbecue later in the afternoon.

Chris' daughter, Jenny, told "Chris often went along to the Red Cow and with their kind support, and the support of our many friends, we are organising this event."

"Last year we raised over £1,600 and had over 50 cyclists and over 100 people at the barbecue. We are hoping to beat this figure at this year's event."

Entry tickets cost £10 per adult and £6 per child and are available from The Red Cow or the village's Post Office until July 6th.
