PCSO Rachael Duddle from Mold Police Station has cycled an amazing 190 miles to raise money for The North Wales Women’s Centre, who support females during times of need. The centre is a safe place for women aged 16+ to access information, support, advocacy and training on issues relating to health, wellbeing and work.
Cycling with a group from Coleg Llandrillo, her big brother and her Dad on 11th August from London to Haywards Heath (64.8 miles) in 33 degree weather, Rachael started her amazing journey (with lots of bottles of water on hand!). Day two consisted of 68.2 miles from Dieppe to Beauvais and day three saw her travel a further 57 miles from Beauvais to Paris.
Rachael said “3 years ago I went through a really hard time in my life, and I didn’t know who to turn to, I went from having everything to nothing. My children got me through and little by little the Women’s Support Centre helped re-build our lives, they helped get me to where I am now. I will be forever grateful to them for their support, this is why I am doing this challenge, I want to give something back to them for all of the help they gave me. I’d also like to say a big thank you to all the NWP officers and staff who have supported and sponsored me, it really means a lot!”
The group consisted of 31 riders, all raising money for different charities. While the total is yet to be confirmed they estimate to have raised approximately £16,000 between them!
