On 2 May 2015 around 300 cyclists took part in the 10th Drumlanrig Challenge, organised by Dumfries Baptist Church and other Nithsdale churches.
Lynne Paterson, the Tearfund Scotland Director was at Drumlanrig to meet everyone involved and says, ’Over the last ten years, the Drumlanrig Challenge has been Tearfund's biggest volunteer-led initiative in Scotland. We are so grateful to all the volunteers who help make it such a success year after year. Thanks to their hard work and dedication we have been able to provide vital aid and support to thousands of people in some of the poorest communities across the world.’
This year the event raised the magnificent sum of over £15,000.
John Glen, Chief Executive of Buccleuch Estates cut the celebratory cake after completing the morning’s ride. John said, ‘Buccleuch Estates is delighted to support the sportive. It’s great to have events that bring people to this area. Tearfund does fantastic work so we are proud to help.’
During the last ten years, the cyclists have eaten around 2,000 bananas and three tons of cake – meet some of the riders, the volunteers and see some of the route (and the cakes!) below.
