A group of cyclists from Tiverton have raised £750 for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance by cycling from Tiverton to Weymouth recently. At the end of their 79 mile cycle ride, the group who are called Cyclists with Steele, were greeted at Weymouth Conservative Club by Dorset volunteers Terry and Susan Dredge.

The cyclists who raised funds for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and Devon Air Ambulance Trust, presented both charities with a cheque for £750. The group are expecting to raise approximately £1000 in total for each charity once further sponsorship money has been received.

The following day the cyclists headed back to Tiverton and on route, paid a visit to Henstridge Airfield where they met pilot Phil Merritt and paramedics Paul Owen and Claire Baker who gave them a tour of the helicopter.
