On Saturday, June 20, the Rotary Club of Stornoway and The Nicolson Institute Interact Club will be hosting a static bike event from 10am to 6pm on Perceval Square in Stornoway, in aid of Prostate Scotland.

The Rotary Club of Stornoway hope to see a total of 500 miles cycled on the day – by Rotary Club members, and any members of the public who would like to take part – and will raise money through sponsorship and donations.

The event will be opened by a procession of The Nicolson Institute Pipe Band and the Marching Band, through Stornoway town centre to Perceval Square, where the static bikes – donated for use on the day by the Comhairle Sports Centres – will be situated.

Displays of work undertaken by both the Rotary Club of Stornoway and The Nicolson Institute will be available to view, and music will be provided by Nicolson Institute Musicians. Teas and coffees will also be available.

The event has been organised as part of the UK-wide Rotary Father’s Day Cycle fundraiser, which will take place on Sunday, June 21st, and will see over 50,000 members of the 1,800 Rotary Clubs take to their bikes for charity.

Prostate Scotland was established in 2006 in order to develop awareness of prostate cancer, which is the most common cancer in men in Scotland, with one in eleven men likely to develop it.
