Ian Burke, the Chief executive of Rank Group, which owns online bingo website Mecca Bingo, just finished a charity cycle race, the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour to raise money for charity. Burke decided to participate in the race to raise funds for Mecca Bingo’s favourite charity, Whizz-Kidz, which helps children with mobility difficulties.

Mecca Bingo has been helping Whizz-Kidz since January 2008 and has managed to donate a massive £300,000 to help this worthy cause. Whizz-Kidz is further going to gain about £16,000 from Burke’s successful bike ride, which took just under five and a half hours to complete. Burke has managed to raise £20,000 from supporters for his brave effort. The remainder of the sum is going to go to other charities that are close to his heart.

The charity cycling event, the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour took place at the Cape of Good Hope Peninsula in South Africa on Sunday 8th March. It required participants to cycle the 109km route in the best time possible in aid of charity. This year’s event was affected by extreme weather conditions, bringing down the overall performance of all the participants. There were almost 30,000 cyclists that turned up to take part in this exciting cycle tour; however, only 27,000 went finished the race.
