A keen cyclist from Rickmansworth has raised over £800 for Chris Wicks Wildlife Rescue (CWWR) by completing his longest ever bike ride of more than 100 miles.
Jamie Waller completed the Marlow Red Kite ride on Sunday, September 5 to help support the Rescue after seeing the huge difference they make to local wildlife through his wife Laura and daughter Ellie, 12, who volunteer at CWWR.
Jamie said: “I never expected to raise such a large amount and I know every penny will make such a difference to the animals – I have seen how hard Chris and his team work to look after all the animals they have brought in to them, many of whom wouldn’t survive without their care”.
He took on the lengthy ride hoping to raise £500 for the rescue centre, but thanks to generous donations from friends family and the community Jamie has smashed his target and raised over £800 so far.
This money will help Chris and his team feed, care for and rehabilitate many animals through the winter, including the endangered Hedgehog, of which they had over 50 to care for last winter.
Jamie updated supporters on his fundraising page on September 5, posting a screenshot of his route and moving time of 5 hours and 48 minutes.
Jamie’s fundraising page is still open for donations at: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jamie-waller5
