Pedal power has helped a woman from Louth raise £1,563 that will go to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Thanks to the help of spinning enthusiasts, family and friends, a 12-hour spinathon was held recently in the Pedal Power Studio, which is situated above The Greyhound pub in Louth.

Tracy Salkeld, 51, set up Tracy’s Challenges as a way to tackle her own goals and at the same time is working tirelessly to raise as much funding as possible for the Alzheimer’s Society.

She is also set to climb to the South Base Camp of Mount Everest in September, which stands at an altitude of 5,364 metres.

The spinathon was held in half hour session from 7am-7pm with some fantastic support in tow from pedal power regulars.

Tracy was amazed by how much was raised during the event.

“I am absolutely overwhelmed by the amount that was raised during the spinathon,” Tracy commented.

“I never thought we would raise as much as what we did, so that is amazing.

“I would just let to say a special thank you to proprietor Sara Richards, and fellow instructors Lindy Jaines, Zoe Hicks and Faye Bierley for all of their help and support on the day.

“I must also of course say a big thank you to everyone who took part in the spinathon, and to all those who took the time to donate.”
