Tigers Trust Cycle Challenge +11th May 2017
Next Friday, four members of staff from the Tigers Trust will take on a fundraising 200-mile cycle challenge to help raise money for both the Trust and Headway, a charity that helps those who have suffered brain injuries by providing support and services to survivors, their families and carers.
The challenge, which will begin on May 19th, will take the staff from Tottenham Hotspur’s White Hart Lane all the way back to the KCOM Stadium in time to deliver the matchball for the Tigers’ final game of the season against Spurs on Sunday 21st May.
As well as raising funds for the Trust, a significant amount of the money raised will be donated to Headway who provided significant support to midfielder Ryan Mason after he sustained a fractured skull against Chelsea in January.
Matt Conway, Tigers Trust Programme Manager and Team Leader for the cycle challenge, said:
“It is going to be a great challenge and one that will be supporting and raising awareness for both the Trust and Headway.
“Headway is a great charity that does some exceptional work and it has been great to partner up with them for this challenge. We have also had support from local and national organisations.
“The ride is a slightly daunting prospect but one that we have all been preparing for and we are now keen to get going.”
Tigers Trust Manager, John Davies added:
“This is a massive challenge for members of my team at the Tigers Trust to take on and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their time, effort and commitment to the challenge. I wish them all the very best of luck and hope all of the Club’s supporters get behind them. I would also like to thank those organisations that have already helped support us in some way.”
Ryan Mason, who is currently recovering from the head injury he suffered in January, is looking forward to welcoming the cycle team back to the KCOM Stadium ahead of the Tigers’ game against his former club Spurs.
“The support I have received since that afternoon at Stamford Bridge has been overwhelming and Headway have played a significant part in that. I’m delighted that the Tigers Trust will be donating some of the funds they raise from this cycle ride to Headway and I wish the team all the very best for what is sure to be a gruelling ride.”
