The Whistlestop Tour raises £10k!
The Whistlestop Tour is the brain child of Premier League referees, Jon Moss and Martin Atkinson. They took their training to new levels last July with a 1,000 miles cycle ride that covered the grounds between every Premier League football club in the UK!
Assisted by colleagues from the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the team faced a gruelling challenge to reach their amazing £50,000 goal to share with the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation.
In their nine day challenge, Moss and Atkinson jumped on their bikes in Watford and faced miles of pedalling until they reached the end of their journey at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland.
Big thanks for spectacular support
The Appeal is honoured to have received an incredible cheque of £10,000 from the lovely lot behind the Whistle-Stop Tour. We can't thank everyone involved enough, and special thanks to Jon and Martin, for their spectacular support of the Appeal!
Jenny Sellers, from the Appeal Fundraising Team said "It is generosity and hard work like this that allows the Appeal to continue our support towards children's and cancer charities - we couldn't do it without people like Jon and Martin."
If you're interested in getting on your bike and fundraising for the Appeal get in touch. We have just the challenge for you in our Round the Beat 2017 event, coming soon!
The Leeds Half Marathon took place on one of the warmest days of the year so far and our runners really had their work cut out in the warm conditions. Amongst our 180 runners were a team of brave teachers from our long standing supporters Wetherby High School.
