Wrexham Sounds chairman Chris Lloyd and a group of friends and supporters journeyed more than 250 miles around the mountains of North Wales. Starting from October 7th-10th to raise money for the revamped social enterprise.
VELO 21 Challenge
Participants in the VELO 21 challenge have already surpassed their £15,000 target. Beginning at the revamped Rhosrobin site, chairman Chris Lloyd and the group had a send-off from well-wishers, also including Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr Ronnie Prince.
Proceeds will help pay for instruments and equipment that will transform the lives of young people through music. “I would like to say a huge thank-you to all of the riders, to our support crew and everyone who got behind us over the four days and the run-up to this challenge,” said Chris.
“Wrexham Sounds is an incredible project with a big future. I am honoured to be a volunteer director and part of such a brilliant team focused on making music more accessible to children. Especially those from challenging backgrounds.
Formerly Vic Studios, the not-for-profit organisation, moved from the town’s Hill Street to Rhosrobin in the summer. Having been shut for 18 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
