THERE were blasts from the past on Saturday when 214 cyclists undertook a ‘Retro Run’ to raise funds for Dodford Children’s Holiday Farm, writes Natalia Lejzak.

The riders took to a variety of contraptions from years gone by, including wooden bikes, tandems and BMXs.

The ninth annual Retro Run began at the Nailers Arms in Bournheath and saw cyclists stop off at pubs in Fairfield and Belbroughton.

Kelly Broadfield, manager at the Dodford Children’s Farm, said: “We are so happy The Retro Run decided to support the charity and would like to thank the organisers and everyone who took part, donated raffle prizes and bought tickets.”

She added she was very excited to find out how much had been raised towards improving the charities facilities and helping offer more disabled and disadvantaged children a memorable visit to Dodford Children’s Holiday Farm.

All will be revealed when the amount is presented to the charity at its annual fete.
