Somerset Kickboxing Academy cycles around Cranleigh Park for charity

First published in Bridgwater Area News

KICKBOXERS dropped their sparring gloves and got on their bikes as they cycled around Cranleigh Gardens in Bridgwater.

The Somerset Kickboxing Academy cycled 250 miles together as a club last Sunday as they raised funds for the Bridgwater-based charity Tayen’s Journey.

Tayen is a two-year-old Bridgwater girl with a life-threatening brain tumour, and Tayen’s Journey raises money for The Neuro Foundation which is raising money to tackle the genetic condition.

Sarah Prewett-Nation, organiser, said: “The club wanted to do something for children in need so we thought we would do something for a local girl.”

The club had originally planned to cycle around Apex Park in Burnham in January but had to call it off when Apex Park flooded.
