Let’s give cycling Sidmouth siblings a heroes’ welcome
SIDMOUTH Hospiscare leaders hope residents will turn out in force to give cycling teen siblings a heroes’ welcome when they pass through their home town on Friday.
Brothers on Bikes Sam and Ollie Turner will arrive between 4.30pm and 5pm and stop off at Keel House and the Sidmouth Hospital car park for a welcome reception staged by the charity.
They will have completed nine days of their epic 900 mile cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End.
Lisa Craig, chairman of Friends of Sidmouth Hospiscare, said: “Let’s show the boys how proud we are.
“We’d love as many people as possible to line the street leading to the hospital and join us for our reception to celebrate their amazing journey.”
