Canal cycle for Farsley lads’ cancer fundraiser

A group of Farsley cricketers will cycle 122 miles to raise money for Leeds Cancer Support.

Nine lads will cycle from Liverpool to Farsley Cricket Club along the Leeds Liverpool Canal, which is around 122 miles.

The cycle, which it’s hoped will take around 12 hours to complete, has been organised by Farsley’s Mathew Lumb. He said:

“Like many others in the world cancer has torn families apart. My family and close friends are no different. I always thought growing up it will never happen to my family or friends… how wrong I was.

“Life really is too short. So as I’m fit and healthy i want to raise some money to help go towards Leeds Cancer Support to show my support in the amazing job day in and day out people do for many loved ones.”

Farsley cricketers taking part in the challenge are Mathew Lumb, Chris Beech, Matthew Revis (Yorkshire CCC), Ryan Blackburn, Jamie Blackburn, James Hoyland, Richard Sutcliffe & Kesar Arshad.

Also joining the cycle is Jordan Lilley (Bradford Bulls) who is raising money for Alzheimer’s society in memory of his late grandfather.
