Bell of Hope 2014 was a huge success!

Thank you so much to those who entered the 2014 Bell of Hope Cycle Challenge for Mental Wellness.

This year (Sunday, 25 May 2014), the event was very successful. We received double the amount of entries than we did in 2013.

Together with the interested created in 2013, contacts we were introduced to, and the publicity received, it just made the success of the event that much easier to achieve. Some of the publicity we had to approach to get, while others just fell in our laps.

We had to apply for some sponsors, these were easy to get, and then some of the services we used in 2013, were more than willing to come back in 2014 to assist us once again free of charge.

We have been told that our event will grow in leaps and bounds. Let us see what happens in 2015.
