Notts County FC’s facilities manager Ben Armstrong has been out and about to support the Football League’s official charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK.
Ben is taking on the London to Amsterdam Cycle Challenge – a 155-mile journey! Thanks to Notts County Lifeline and On-call recruitment, Ben raised over £1,000. County fans, friends, family and colleagues have also chipped in and the total now stands at over £2,400.
“Everyone has been hugely supportive of the ride and the support has been massively appreciated,” said the Notts rider.
Adrian Rawden, Managing Director of On-call recruitment, noted: “I am very pleased to be able to support Ben, especially as Prostate Cancer UK is a charity I support myself.”
Legendary former Watford, AC Milan and England striker Luther Blissett led a team of football fans off on a fundraising cycle ride from London to Amsterdam for Prostate Cancer UK.
The team set off on the epic 155-mile journey from Wembley Stadium, with the route passing through the picturesque countryside of rural England before crossing the Channel from Harwich and arriving on the flat landscape of Dutch Zeeland.
The two-day cycle will see the team arrive in Amsterdam’s Dam Square on the afternoon of Saturday 15th June, and will raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK – The Football League’s Official Charity Partner.
With 250,000 men – enough to fill Wembley Stadium three times over – living with prostate cancer in the UK, the epic cycle ride hopes to increase awareness of the disease and help raise funds so that more men survive it and enjoy a better quality of life.
