A cheque for £500 was handed over by members of Crossfit Clitheroe to the head of a charity which raises money to adapt bikes for use by disabled people.

Simon Lord, founder of Empowered People, has MS himself and strives to improve the lives of disabled cyclists by completing sponsored coast-to-coast rides and hosting lots of other fund raising events.

Crossfit raised the money by holding an afternoon photoshoot in which photographer Zoie Carter-Ingham was on hand
to snap portraits in return for a £5 donation.

The event was part of the Man Up for Mick campaign, which is raising money in memory of Clitheroe’s Dr Mick Barsby, who died last year.
