Notts Rider’s Big Thank You

13 June 2013

The Notts Rider has thanked his supporters ahead of his big cycle challenge, which will take place later this week.

Ben Armstrong, the club’s facilities manager, will be flying the Magpies flag when he takes on the London to Amsterdam Cycle Challenge, a 155-mile journey that will raise funds for the Football League's official charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK. 
 
With the help of Notts County Lifeline and a number of businesses, including 3663, Premier Electrical, On-Call Recruitment, Carlsberg, Anlens Commercial Cleaning and Richard Betts Painters and Decorators, Ben raised over £1,000.
 
County fans, friends, family and colleagues have also chipped in and the total now stands at an impressive £2,100 ahead of the challenge, which starts at Wembley Stadium on Friday 14 June. 
 
“Everyone has been hugely supportive of the ride and the support has been massively appreciated,” said the Notts Rider.
 
"I am looking forward to the challenge and meeting everybody on the ride with the same goal as myself.

"It's a big test but the thought of raising money for such a great charity will drive me over the finish line."
 
Ben set an initial target of £5,000 and fans can help him edge closer to that amount on his Just Giving page.
