Raising cash for Yorkshire Air Ambulance
Avid Huddersfield Town fan, Jon will be pedalling for pounds from Yeovil to Huddersfield to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance ‘Keep It Up’ campaign. The Pink Link ‘Pedal for Pounds 3’ bike ride will be Huddersfield Town FC’s third charity cycle ride.
Jon will join more than 300 cyclists, including Town chairman Dean Hoyle and commercial director Sean Jarvis, to begin the 280 mile ride at Huish Park, Yeovil, on the morning of Wednesday May 2, arriving at Huddersfield’s Galpharm Stadium on Saturday May 5 just in time for Huddersfield Town’s last home game of the season.
It costs £7,200 per day to keep both Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopters operational and all the money raised from the ride, which will stop off in Bath, Solihull and Sheffield on the way, will go to the ‘Keep it Up’ campaign.
Jon says: "The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is our company’s chosen charity and is a very worthy cause. The Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides a rapid response life-saving service to around five million people, seven days a week, 365 days a year and relies on charity funds to keep going.
"I took part in the Huddersfield to Brighton cycle ride last year for the Keep It Up Campaign and this year I’m hoping to raise at least £2,500 through my Just Giving page."
