Rock legend to cycle the Chesterfield Canal
Dave Berry, famous for classic hits like The Crying Game, will be cycling the full 46 miles of the Chesterfield Canal on April 8th. He will be raising funds for the Chesterfield Canal Trust. He will be accompanied by his daughter, Tania Colley, and a friend, Jeff Troops.
Dave is no stranger to such events. Last year he walked all forty miles of the Limey Way and earned £1600 for the MS Society in Chesterfield.
He lives locally, in Dronfield, and made contact with the Chesterfield Canal Trust whilst taking his granddaughter on a Santa Special cruise last Christmas. He was impressed by the work that their volunteers do and decided to help.
You can support Dave’s ride by making donations via the Chesterfield Canal Trust website (just search for Chesterfield Canal) or via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org ; alternatively you could hand in a cheque or money to Tapton Lock Visitor Centre or Hollingwood Hub. Please mark any donations as Dave Berry.
Dave’s chart successes were in the 1960s, but he is still working hard. He has just finished a series of dates, but in October will start the Sensational 60’s Experience 50th Anniversary Tour with the Union Gap, the Ivy League, the Swinging Blue Jeans and Herman’s Hermits. This will run to over sixty performances across Britain. For further information, go to his website www.cryinggame.co.uk .
