Six-year-old Town fan cycling to the John Smith’s Stadium to raise money
- Young supporter fundraising for Pedal for Pounds 10 with Made By Cooper
- Six-year-old cycling 8-miles in total to the John Smith’s Stadium and home
- Comments from Club Ambassador Andy Booth
With Pedal for Pounds 10 with Made by Cooper on the horizon for Huddersfield Town fans, six-year-old Spencer Rhys-Vivian has made it his mission to do his own bit for the cause!
Dad, Paul Rhys-Vivian, is one of five people who has taken part in every Pedal for Pounds event, cycling around 2,145 miles over the 10 years. Come Friday 3 May, he will have cycled an incredible 2,468 miles, the equivalent of cycling to Egypt!
As Spencer is too young to take part in the 323-mile Pedal for Pounds 10 that will see Paul and 200 cyclists travel through Belgium and the Netherlands, Spencer and his Dad will cycle eight-miles from their home to the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday to watch Town take on Watford at the John Smith’s Stadium, then cycle back home after the game.
Spencer has set up a JustGiving page where Town supporters can donate. The money that is raised will benefit the four P4P10 with Made By Cooper charities; Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Town Foundation, Ruddi’s Retreat and Kirkwood Hospice.
Club Ambassador, Andy Booth, has praised Spencer and Paul for their efforts and has wished them the best of luck, commenting:
“I think it is absolutely fantastic that Spencer – a six-year-old – is so passionate about supporting Pedal for Pounds.
“It really shows how far this ride has come and how it attracts people of all ages. I hope they both have an enjoyable ride to the game on Saturday.
“I would urge all Town supporters to back them and to donate via the link above.”
