Pedal for Pounds… and Points

Huddersfield Town’s last minute winner at Brighton was the perfect end to our gruelling 280 mile charity bike ride. 170 of us set off from Huddersfield on Wednesday morning for our 3 day charity cycle ride down to the South Coast. With overnight stops at Nottingham, Milton Keynes and Gatwick we have hopefully raised £200,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town academy.

I’m very stiff and sore today having got back on the supporters’ coach late last night but it was an amazing experience. The team spirit and camaraderie will stay with me forever. I’m so proud to support a football club that has such wonderful fans and does so much for the local community. Let’s hope we can now go on and get promotion.

Thank you to everyone who has already sponsored me – we’re past the £1,500 mark – thank you too for all the wonderful messages of support.

You can still sponsor me though please via
