Volunteers from Coastguard stations across Kent completed a charity cycle ride from Rochester to Dover. Members of the Herne Bay Coastguard joined the ride, which was raising money for Sense, a charity for deaf and blind children. It took the team two days to complete the ride, with riders aiming to raise £6 for every mile completed. Herne Bay coastguard deputy station manager Matt Stickels said:
“We finished the weekend in true Coastguard fashion. We started as a team and finished as a team. A big thank you to all the members of the public who donated. What can I say? The riders are heroes I reckon. It was a hard first day but everyone battled through. The second day was an absolute pleasure of a ride.”
