HTAFC Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan commented, "On behalf of everyone at the Club I'd like to wish both Alan and the P4P4 Team Red cyclists the very best of luck on their amazing fundraising challenges. Their commitment to supporting and raising funds for the 'Keep It Up' campaign is outstanding, and I think this really does prove that Town fans are the best in the world!"
Both Alan and the Team Red cyclists are raising funds for the Club's 'Keep It Up' campaign, its innovative fundraising partnership with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance which benefits the lifesaving charity and Town's Academy.
In just over four weeks’ time, 290 Town fans including Club Ambassador Andy Booth, Academy Manager Mark Lillis and Commercial Director Sean Jarvis will cycle 240 miles on the Pink Link Pedal for Pounds 4: Tour of Yorkshire to try and take the 'Keep It Up' campaign total to a staggering £1 million.
