Pedal for Pengelly Fundraising Challenge

Fleur Elliott and Philip King from Torquay Museum will be leading a cycle fundraising challenge over a 24 hour period on 16th September 2017.

Static bikes provided by Torquay based Castle Gym and Fitness Centre will be used to travel over 1000 miles/1700 km, the distance from Torquay Museum to Muzeum Trebova in the Czech Republic.
