Riding For A Good Cause

14 August 2012

Colchester United's chairman and director will be riding to Deepdale this weekend for charity.

Preston North End will be showing their full support to the cause, and if you wish to donate to this sensational fundraising effort, please visit the donations page below.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.

"If anyone wants to support this fundraising effort during the season or do a part of the bike ride or the runs with us, we’d be very grateful to see you be a part of that."

"This will be a challenge for us both as we look to raise a great deal of money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. 

Robbie explained at Colchester’s Media Day: "Myself and my brother agreed earlier this summer to cycle to first and last away games of the season and to run to each of the home games from my house in Great Totham. 

The U’s have continued their long standing partnership with the national charity the Teenage Cancer Trust, having first started with a big fundraising in 2005 in the memory of young supporter Emily Begg, who passed away from leukaemia, aged just 14. 

Colchester United’s chairman Robbie Cowling and brother Richard, who is a director at the club will be embarking on an incredible effort this week for Saturday’s npower League One opener against Preston North End.
