Councillor Ian Preece, Mayor of Great Dawley Town Council said: “As part of my fundraiser for this year, I wanted to do something different.

“That’s why I’ve decided to take up the challenge to cycle over 270 miles, monument to monument, from my hometown of Dawley, all the way to Dover; the place where Captain Matthew Webb set off his iconic challenge of becoming the first cross channel swimmer.”

Councillor Preece added, “Dulcie’s story has touched the hearts of the whole local community, and I would like to do my part to help Dulcie as much as possible.”

“Severn Hospice also lies extremely close to my heart. I’ve personally experienced the support when they looked after my sister when she had a terminal illness, and I know it’s been a rock to many residents in the area who have had ill family members.”

Councillor Preece will be setting off on his bike on Sunday 2 October, heading all the way down to Dover. People can donate over on the Mayor’s Go Fund Me page.
