Pile on the Miles, Pull in the Pounds

Fundraising and fitness proved to be a perfect combination as Ark Cancer Centre Charity teamed up with Basingstoke Sports Trust and The Malls shopping centre for a special event in support of Mayor's Charity Week.

'Pile on the Miles, Pull in the Pounds' was the title of the fundraiser which saw people being encouraged to cycle or row the length of the River Thames.
