Long-standing KIU backer lends name to bike ride

For the fourth consecutive season, Huddersfield Town club partner The Pink Link Ltd will be the title sponsor of the Club’s ‘Pedal for Pounds’ fundraising bike ride.
This season’s cyclists will follow a route from Arsenal FC to the John Smith’s Stadium, named ‘The Chapman Trail’ in honour of the Club’s legendary manager Herbert Chapman, in order to raise money for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.  
To celebrate its continued support of the ride, The Pink Link Ltd’s Managing Director Richard Allen and Sales & Commercial Director Vicki Davenport – along with mascot Pinky Lynx – joined Town’s Senior Commercial Manager Tracy Nelson and Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan at the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Pink Link Ltd’s Managing Director Richard Allen commented:
‘The Pink Link Ltd is absolutely delighted to be announced as the main event sponsor for ‘The Pink Link Pedal 4 Pounds 5.
“The challenge is all about courage, determination, honesty and stamina which are qualities that our company brand support and stand for.
“We wish all the participants every success in finishing the course and, more importantly, in raising as much money as possible for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.”
Huddersfield Town’s Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan added:
“The Pedal for Pounds bike rides are quickly becoming an institution at the football club, just like The Pink Link Ltd’s support for them!
“Richard, Vicki and the rest of The Pink Link Ltd team have shown outstanding support for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign since its inception, not only through the sponsorship of the bike ride but also through their participation.
“On behalf of the Club – and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance – I would like to thank them for their continued backing of this extremely worthwhile cause.”
The Pink Link Ltd is a Huddersfield-based, family run company, whose distinctively branded trucks are often seen on the roads in the region and nationally.
