Sixty members of the Cycling Touring Club converged on Stallcombe House for a coffee and cake fundraiser last week.

The weekly ‘bike bus’ takes place every Thursday when cyclists meet up and socialise at various destinations throughout the county.

And last week’s gathering was at Stallcombe House, a 55-acre home for 33 adults with learning disabilities. The visitors chatted over a selection of cream cakes and hot fresh coffee, and between them they raised over £250 for the Stallcombe Charitable Trust.

Deputy manager Christine Jarman said: “This is the second year we have welcomed the CTC here; it is great having so many cyclists coming from so far to enjoy the facilities that Stallcombe has to offer.

“Our residents love to see and meet new people.

We are also really grateful for the money they have raised here today, we are hoping to see many of them here again on Saturday, July 20 when we are holding our annual Family Fun Dog Show and Traditional Summer Fair.”

The event will be between 11am and 4.30pm.
