This morning 16 cyclists/representatives of Bury Town Football Club arrived at the JD Stadium as part of Bury2Bury Cycle Challenge...
The cycle challenge is helping to raise much needed funds for the charity, Suffolk Break Through Breast Cancer. There is a considerable lack of public awareness about breast cancer in men. The reality is that, although rare, this is a disease that affects between 350 and 400 men each year in the UK.
The cyclists will be covering around 230 miles over the course of four days stopping at the JD Stadium, Stoke City, Leicester City and Peterborough United, before heading back to their ground, Ram Meadow, Bury St Edmunds.
Commercial Account Manager, Daniel Bowerbank was there to greet the participants on their arrival, and presented them with a 130 year anniversary shirt.
We would like to wish all 16 cyclists the very best of luck for the rest of their journey. To follow their progress, follow Bury Town FC on Twitter: @BuryTownFC.
