The club has carefully considered the latest information from the ACU about starting to commence trials competition in July and August.
The consensus of opinion is that the conditions to be complied with are particularly onerous and with the maximum number of entries permitted (40) it is not worth attempting to run any events at this time. We have not taken this decision lightly but feel that it is in the best interests to maintain the health and safety of our Competitors and Officials that we do not run any events at the present time.
One casualty of the new rules and our decision is that our well supported Susan Harris Charity Two-Day Trial, which since it first commenced, has raised around £15000 for various charities thanks to the help of generous sponsors and you our competitors. We feel that we cannot let this year go by without making a donation to a charity and have decided to make a donation to a charity that we have supported previously, namely the Leicestershire and Rutland Blood Bikes. This voluntary organisation has been working hard during the present COVID-19 crisis supporting the NHS and we feel that a donation to them will help them to continue their good work.
For more deatils on what they do please see their website https://www.lrbloodbikes.org.uk/ or their Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LRBloodBikes/
The donation that we have sent to them is a cheque for £1000.
We wish all our competitors well and hope that we will soon return to normality and that we will be able to run our trials as usual and look forward to your support in the future.
