Cycle challenge to help table tennis star Tom


The Skegness branch of the Nottingham Building Society is aiming to complete a sponsored 312 mile bike in just one week to raise funds for local sports star Tom Jarvis.

From Monday (July 27) until Friday, with the help of Fresh Fitness, staff will be completing a sponsored bike ride for the charity Sportsaid and the branch’s local aspiring table tennis star Tom Jarvis.

Skegness Grammar School student Tom recently returned from the European Youth Championships and will be representing Europe in the Chinese Table Tennis Super League this summer.

The team aim to raise £250 to add to the £750 already donated to Tom to aid him with expenses with his training and worldwide travel for competitions.

A spokesman said: “To help support and be part of this brilliant cause you can pop into our Skegness office at 11 Lumley Road to sponsor our challenge or come and meet the team during the bike ride week and give them your full support so we can achieve this goal.”
