Hundreds Raised for Huddersfield Town Charity Pedal for Pounds 5

Dewsbury based seating manufacturer Shackletons and their industry colleagues, the Decs Group and Simon Hough MRICS Construction Professional, helped Asda shoppers in Dewsbury pack their weekly shop to raise cash for the fifth Huddersfield Town Football Club annual charity cycle ride.

Asda welcomed the charity bag pack from fundraising team the Clean Shaven Bikers, who raised a total of £1193.00 on the day in aid of the Keep It Up campaign, which raises money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the club’s Academy.

Nicknamed the ‘Chapman Trail’, after former Huddersfield Town and Gunners Manager Herbert Chapman, the ride will begin on Wednesday April 23 2014 midday from the Emirates Stadium, cycling to Cambridge, Leicester and Doncaster in time for the last home game of the season against Leicester City on Saturday 26 April 2014.

Jason Bloom, Clean Shaven Bikers member says: “Thanks to Asda shoppers we’ve had a very positive start to our fundraising efforts. We’re now looking forward to the next eight weeks of preparation and continuous fundraising before we tackle the 250 mile ride.”

The YAA relies solely on the generosity of the public to help save lives across the region. Since October 2002 the charity has flown nearly 5,200 people directly to hospitals across the region and requires £9990 per day to keep their helicopters in the air.
