A great family day!

On behalf of the St Christopher's Cathedral community, may I say how grateful we are for highlighting Friday's Wheelathon at the BIC, which turned out to be a wonderful family day for so many people from all nations: babies in buggies, children on scooters, young people on roller blades and hundreds of all ages on bikes.

There are not many places in Bahrain that families can cycle together in safety, so we are grateful to the BIC management for opening the prestigious Formula One track for this special charity event and the helpfulness of their staff in providing for all our needs.

The Wheelathon, with the very competitive hospital bed race down the home straight of the track, has become an established event in the Bahrain calendar and one that many families look forward to. There can be few more enjoyable ways to raise funds for local charities.

Thank you to all who make it possible.

Chris Butt

Dean, St Christopher's Cathedral
