Robbie Set For Latest Ride

1 May 2014

U's Chairman eager to help fundraising bid.

Colchester United chairman Robbie Cowling is back on his bike this weekend.

Robbie and a group of cyclists will be cycling to the game at Walsall, once again looking to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, following last year's mammoth efforts.

Whilst still wanting to raise funds for the TCT, Robbie is urging fans to donate in a different manner this time round.

He told the U's official website: "I'm sure that I'll enjoy the ride but the main priority is to raise as much money as we possibly can.

"All donations will ultimately go to the Teenage Cancer Trust but I would love to help Stephen Sutton's efforts in helping others.

"I have really admired the fact that ever since he was diagnosed, he has done all he can to help other teenagers, and I ask any supporters wishing to back our cycle ride to donate via Stephen's Just Giving page."

Robbie, his brother Richard and son Mitchell will be joined in the two day ride by Academy coach Steve Ball and long term supporter Sam Wolton.

Stuart Begg, whose daughter Emily started the U's initial interest in the Teenage Cancer Trust, will be driving the support vehicle for the trip, which begins on Friday ahead of the final game of the season.

Friday sees over eighty miles covered en route to Northampton for the overnight stop, before the remaining sixty three miles are completed on Saturday.

Robbie and the group's efforts are the latest in a long list of activities the U's and the TCT have teamed up for, a bucket collection at the U's final home game of the season, which raised £1037, being the last.
