Scouting For Girls raise over £20,000 for Wellchild on first ever London to Brighton bike ride on choppers

The award winning British pop band Scouting For Girls arrived in Brighton at 4pm on Monday 30th August, after successfully riding 60 miles from London to Brighton on second hand Chopper bikes, in aid of WellChild.

Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and Pete Ellard left London on Sunday 29th August at 10am from Wandsworth Park and upon arrival played an intimate acoustic show at the Komedia.

The band have raised over £20,000 with more donations pouring in.

Fans can donate £1.50 to WellChild by texting WELLCHILD to 70444, or go to Justgiving.com/scoutingforgirls

Scouting For Girls’ vocalist Roy Stride:

‘No one has ever attempted riding Choppers from London to Brighton before, so we are over the moon! We ache all over, but it was worth every minute as we have raised over £20,000 for WellChild. We are now going to auction the lucky Choppers off for WellChild so get bidding on Ebay!! Thank you all for being so generous. We’re now off to bed for a week to recover!”

Colin Dyer from WellChild:

“We couldn’t be more grateful to Roy, Greg and Pete for choosing to support WellChild in this incredible way. Like most charities we spend our time trying to persuade and cajole people into fundraising for us – and helping us to raise the profile for our work. The fact that the challenge and concert has been totally the band’s idea is just amazing and I would like to thank everyone who has supported them along the way.”

WellChild is the national charity for sick children and provides practical help for children and their families. It is funded solely by the people of the UK. Scouting For Girls are official ambassadors of the charity.
