Brother thanks


those who cycled for Wayne


A


n Abbots businessman has thanked all those who cycled last month in memory of his late


brother. Glynn Pope, and 36 family and friends rode 22


miles in memory of Wayne, who died of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome just ten days after his thirtieth birthday in 2005. The cycle event started at the Pope family


home in Garston and, despite bad weather, the atmosphere on the day was upbeat. Glynn said: ―The event takes place every year


close to Wayne‘s birthday, and everybody looks forward to the event as it is always cheerful. We had a barbecue at the end, adding to the happy feeling between everyone, and the cycle was yet another success.‖ This year‘s event raised about £3,000 for the


charity. Among those who took part was Christine Farren, a first time Wayne's Fund


Maisie Goodliffe with Glynn Pope and teaching staff at Rickmansworth Park School.


rider, who raised £255. Over the past six years 20 heart defibrillators


have been donated locally. The most recent donation was made to Maisie Goodliffe and her teachers at Rickmansworth Park School. Maisie, aged six, has a condition which means


she has an abnormally fast heart rate. Francis Combe Academy also received a heart


defibrillator — which was used to bring back to life history teacher Anthony Taylor after he suffered a heart attack. Mr Taylor took part in this year‘s cycle ride. Estate agent Glynn described his brother as ―a


happy person who loved life, his family and his friends‖. ―Wayne would have thought us mad for doing


the event and wearing ourselves out, but he would equally appreciate our efforts and the fact we are now able to save lives with the money that the Wayne‘s Fund has raised.‖ To make a donation email glynn.pope@hotmail.com or visit the Wayne‘s Fund Charity page on Facebook. by Ellen Kydd
