A Wimbledon teenage mental health charity estimates they raised around £7,000 through participating in Ride London.

Stem4 had 14 riders who took part in the charity cycle on the August 3-4.

The charity is pleased that the money raised will continue to help young people in the area.

Stem4 trustee Angela McKenzie said: “All of the riders did an amazing job raising funds for the charity.”

The 45-year-old from Twickenham, who participated in Ride London with her partner Mark McAlpine, 38, described crossing the finishing line as ‘exhilarating’.

She said: “Taking part was an amazing experience. 

“Before the event I was having doubts that I could make the distance, but on the day you have such a big support network in all the other riders.”

All the Stem4 riders completed the course, despite accidents causing them to finish later than expected.

The charity is now preparing for the Vitality Big Half in March 2020, where volunteers will be running over 21 kilometres through London to raise cash for its work in teenage mental health.
