Helping young people reach their goals.
Location: Wales United Kingdom
In 1997 rugby teams Brive and Pontypridd were involved in a heated encounter during a cup match, which has become known as the infamous Battle of Brive.
In April, Mencap Cymru is organising a gruelling charity cycle ride between the two towns.
The money raised in the challenge will help us campaign against learning disability hate crime. Many people with a learning disability become victims of attacks, thefts and bullying. We can provide support to individuals who have experienced abuse and help them report it to the police.
The 580 mile journey will begin at Sardis road car park in Pontypridd at 9am on Saturday 20 April. The public are being encouraged to come along to cheer on the group as they leave. The 13 cyclists will arrive in Brive a week later in time for the team’s last home game of the season.
Supporters who can’t come to the start can give a donation instead by texting MBTB97 £(donation amount) to 70070 or by donating online.
