Cyclists on London to Amsterdam cycle challenge to raise money for Prostate Cancer
Town’s team of cyclists set off on the London to Amsterdam Cycle Challenge today, raising money for Prostate Cancer UK and the Friends of Ipswich Town charities.
John Reader; James Robbins; Paul Milton; Lee Godfree; Graham Wright; David Moat; David Wyss and Richard Gascoine will join cyclists representing other EFL clubs on the trip, which is now in its fourth year.
Simon Milton, who would have been in the saddle until an Achilles injury left him on crutches, is part of the support team travelling with the cyclists.
More than £410,000 has been raised on the London to Amsterdam ride for Prostate Cancer, a disease that kills more than 11,000 men every year.
The sponsors for Town’s team also sponsored the Club’s recent Tour of Suffolk charity ride. They are: main sponsor: John Reader at GAH; associate sponsors: James Robbins (Marshall Hatchick); Warwick Dunnett (Seven Telematics); Iain Jamie (Hopkins Homes). Cycle challenge partners: Andy Sallnow (Prostate Cancer UK); Steve Grimwood (Elmy Cycles); Darren Reeves and Oliver Weston (Global Self Drive); Oliver Jackson (Greene King) and The East of England Co-operative Society.
