A host of former Notts County players will be taking to the saddle for a bike ride to raise money for the Jimmy and Jack Statue Fund this summer - and you can join them!
The likes of Les Bradd, Tommy Johnson, Steve Cherry and Dave McVay have all agreed to ride in the ‘Derby and Back for Jimmy and Jack’ bike ride, which will take place from Meadow Lane, to Pride Park and back on Sunday 14 July.
If you would like to join these ex-players, as well as your fellow Notts fans in what should be an enjoyable ride, whilst also helping to raise valuable funds towards the Jimmy and Jack Statue fund, all you will need to do is raise £100 in sponsorship, or donations.
You can even join up with a friend and do one leg each, if you don’t feel like riding the whole route, although the event is open to riders of all standards and to all those over the age of 16, with the intention to have fun and raise funds, rather than compete.
Every penny raised from the event will go towards the fund to build a memorial statue for two true greats of Notts County’s past, Jimmy Sirrel and Jack Wheeler.
Run in association with Paul Lowe Associates Limited and thanks to the generous sponsorship of Skills Coaches, BettaBytz computers and Max One Nutrition, this event could prove to be a key fundraiser towards realising the ambition of erecting the commemorative statue here at Meadow Lane.
Marshalls will line the route between the two football stadiums and starts will be staggered to accommodate a range of abilities, whilst team leaders will be elected to lead groups of 10 riders to ensure everyone is looked after on the day.
