Striking opportunities offered to caring sponsors whose needs match Blazing Saddles firefighters' cycling challenge
Blazing Saddles is a group of firefighters from Oldham Fire Station in Greater Manchester that raises funds for charity through cycling events.
"Last year we completed the 'pure' 3 Peaks Challenge, cycling between Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon, after scaling each summit and cycling a distance of 500 miles in 3.5 days.
"We managed to raise a total of £15,000 for four charities - The Firefighters Charity, The Christie Charity, Sands and EDS.
"Next year, at the end of May, we intend to cycle from Kranj in Slovenia (Twin Town of Oldham) and back to Oldham, a distance of 1,200 miles in ten days.
"We are seeking sponsorship to cover costs and to assist us in raising as much money as possible for charity. We are planning to use a support vehicle which can display sponsors' logos and also have logos on our cycle tops. The event will also be covered in the local press - Manchester Evening News and Oldham Chronicle".
