Ten members of staff from the Tigers Trust are taking on a 300-mile charity cycle challenge to help raise money to relaunch the Trust's 'Tigers Together' mental health programme.
The cycle challenge starts on 26th-28th April 2018, and the route will take riders all the way from the Cardiff City Stadium in South Wales all the way back to the KCOM Stadium in time for kick-off as the Tigers host the Bluebirds at 3pm on Saturday 28th April.
Ellis Oliver, the Tigers Trust’s Hub School Manager, who is taking part in the challenge said: “The ten staff undertaking this challenge range from the experienced to the completely new to cycling. Irrespective of ability, what matters is that we are doing this to benefit those in the community that need it.
“I’m sure there will be aches and pains along the way but we are looking forward to the challenge of cycling 300 miles in aid of a good cause. We would like to thank all those that have contributed in any capacity to help raise awareness of the challenge we are taking on”. 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.
“The ‘Tigers Together’ project will benefit massively from any proceeds gained by the challenge, and we hope that we can expand our services to make sure that we are helping to support as many people living with mental health problems in Hull and the East Riding as possible.”
