Albert Centre team taking part in the Coast to Coast (C2C) ride.

Staff from a Teesside charity are undertaking a fund-raising two-wheel challenge later this month.

The team from the Middlesbrough-based Albert Centre will be taking on the Coast to Coast (C2C) ride.

They’re due to set off from Whitehaven in Cumbria on Saturday, August 27, with a 140-mile trip ahead of them to Sunderland.

Service manager Lynne Suthern said: “A number of our employees have organised the coast to coast cycle ride in order to raise funds for the people who access our services.

“The money will be used to organise recovery-focused activities that will help our clients to rebuild their confidence, self-esteem and develop social self-help support networks.

“In that way we can help them maintain their recovery and avoid relapsing.”
