There was a great send off for the Beijing Biddies by the mayor and many wellwishers, including friends and family. The team set off on their Arctic Challenge from Carlisle City Centre on Wednesday 24th February, and you can see a short video below as the Mayor waved them on. There has been some fantastic press coverage, and it is exciting to see the progress the team are already making towards the Arctic Circle.
<br>The Beijing Biddies aim to raise £100K for Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, and are already close to the £60K mark! If you can help by sponsoring the team, every penny will make a difference to some very important work by these two inspiring charities. Link to donate below.
