Cyclists donate $20,000 from ride

BORDER cyclists have helped get Albury-Wodonga’s cancer centre moving, raising $20,000.

The total raised from last month’s Lake Hume Cycle Challenge was donated yesterday.

It’s a huge jump in previous funds raised by the Rotary Club of Bellbridge Lake Hume, which organised the event.

In 2012 it raised $7000 and last year $11,000.

More than 440 cyclists took part in the event, with one route from the wall of the Hume Dam to central Albury.

Their involvement raised $18,000 in total, with the Rotary Club putting in $2000 of their own funds to round up the figure.

The $65 million cancer centre is due to open late next year.

It will have new treatment facilities as well as a dedicated wellness centre for patients.
