Journalists get on their bike for charity

Led by the Colin Bateman from The Daily Express and David Lloyd from the London Evening Standard, the six set off from The Brit Oval on the 13th September and will cycle around all 18 first-class County Headquarters, finishing at Lord’s on Sunday 28th.

Durham County Cricket Club arranged the riders with complimentary accommodation courtesy of the Premier Inn at Durham South (A1(M) Services) for their stay in the North East.

In all, they will ride over 1,000 miles and raise much needed funds for two charities; the Laurie Engel Fund which is helping the Teenage Cancer Trust to build a special unit at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital for sick teenagers.

And the other charity is Head’s Up, a research programme devoted to tackling cancers of the throat and head and supported by Hugh Morris, the managing director of the England cricket team.

To support Heads Up please go to David Lloyd’s Just Giving page, the address of which is:
