Town’s school partner provides last minute training for Boothy
Huddersfield Town’s School Partner Royds Hall High School is conducting its own in-house version of ‘Pedal for Pounds 4’ ahead of the actual bike ride’s departure on Wednesday morning!
The students and teachers at the Huddersfield-based school have taking turns aboard five stationary bikes all week to complete the 300 miles involved in this year’s tour of Yorkshire and on Monday morning they were joined by Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth, who took the opportunity to get in some last minute training alongside the pupils whilst helping them with their challenge!
Huddersfield Town’s Operations Director Ann Hough, who is also a trustee of the school, also did her bit.
The school’s efforts this week is expected to raise a superb £4,000 for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign, which will be split between the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy.
Ann told htafc.com:
“Royds Hall’s Head of PE Jonathan Schofield told me he would have liked to get the pupils involved in Pedal for Pounds, but obviously that would provide huge logistical issues for a High School. Instead, they’ve brought Pedal for Pounds to their school!
“This has been a great way of getting all the pupils at the school involved in a healthy initiative – every ‘community within the school is involved.
“£4,000 is an incredible amount of money and the Club is very grateful for the efforts of the school.”
