Day 3 & 4: Acorns Italian Alps Challenge

20 June 2019

The Cheltenham Town staff charity cycle ride to raise funds for Acorns Children's Hospice has seen the team complete their four day challenge.

On days three and four they once again took to the windy roads in the Italian mountains as part of their fundraising journey to raise money for the club's charity partners for the 2018/19 season.

On day three the team of assistant manager Russell Milton, under-18s boss Pete Haynes, Senior Sports Therapist Gavin Crowe plus Barry Roberts and support driver Gary Haynes covered 55 kilometres, climbing a total of 5,400 feet while completing the Gavia Pass.

Then on day four the final day involved four hours in the saddle, climbing 5,956 feet with a total of 50 miles cycled.

The team took on the challenge to raise funds for Acorns who provide vital care for babies, children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions across the region.

They are now very close to reaching their target fundraising figure. If you would like to donate click here.
