Pedal for Pounds 9

Our Sales & Marketing Manager Ben Greenwood and his brother Adam were tasked to travel from Lille in France, through Belgium and back to Huddersfield to raise money for the Keep It Up Campaign, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice & The Hollybank Trust. A total of 287 miles in the saddle!!

The Journey began travelling by ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge and then continued with a visit to the memorials of Edward John Didymus, Leigh Richmond Roose and Charles Edward Randall’s along the way.

On Thursday 10 May the cyclists travelled 76 miles across France to Belgium. Visiting the resting places of Sidney James and Larrett Roebuck laying wreaths, reading a poem and having a moment to pay their respects to the fallen. That evening the cyclists visited The Last Post at Menin Gate.

Day three saw the cyclists race to Zebrugge for the overnight ferry back to Hull, whilst visiting the final resting place of former Town player Ernest George Kenworthy, the ride stretched 57 miles!!

The last leg back to PPG Canalside was the longest and hardest by far for the riders, spanning 87 miles from Hull via York back to Huddersfield before they finished at PPG Canalside for pie and peas, alongside a celebration of the ride and Huddersfield Town staying in the Premier League!!
