On 1st July the Mayor of Hastings launched the Hastings to Edinburgh cycle ride to raise awareness and funds for the charity Freedom from Torture (FfT), dedicated to healing and protecting people who have survived torture. 

Moira Dunworth and Shelagh King will complete the whole 19 stages, with others joining for one or more stages. Councillor Leah Levane chairs the East Sussex group of FfT that works to support the vital work done by the organisation.
