Youngsters invited to join Cycle Together at Sandringham, to raise money for Park House
Young people are being invited to join a charity bike ride to raise money for disabled people visiting the region.
Cycle Together Sandringham, held around the Royal Estate near King's Lynn, is also offering prizes for schools, Scouts and Guide groups that take part in this family-friendly ride on Sunday, June 18.
The event is held to raise money for disabled guests staying at Leonard Cheshire Disability's Park House hotel in Sandringham and has routes suitable for all ages and abilities.
Prizes for youngsters this year include a £100 IT support voucher for the school with the highest percentage of its pupils taking part.
There will also be a free session on the climbing wall at Lynnsport for the scouting or guiding group with the largest turnout. There are special prizes for the youngest rider, the biggest family group, and a framed photo for the best picture on social media.

All cyclists will help Leonard Cheshire Disability raise funds to create an outdoor games area, adapted to the needs of disabled guests at Park House.

Flitcham mum Justine Cullum signed up for Cycle Together after her 10-year-old daughter decided to take on the 25 mile route.
She said: 'Park House is very local and I think it's very important that young children get involved with their community. I'll be following my daughter on the 25 mile route and I'll be just grateful if I finish with no chain problems or punctures.' Hotel manager Tess Gilder said: 'Cycle Together Sandringham raises vital funds for Park House, which gives disabled people and their carers the chance of a much-needed holiday. While 100pc of the entry fees go direct to the charity, we also urge participants to raise as much as they can through sponsorship so we can do even more for our disabled guests when they visit.'
Last year more than 100 children took part, the youngest just 5 years old. Entry is £5 for all distances, plus any sponsorship money they can raise.
