Proud to be “County”
Once again our fans show that they are the best. Brilliant County fans….and a few other clubs’ supporters besides. The inaugural “County Charity Cycle” from Stockport County FC to Southport FC was a resounding success. Last Saturday, all 70 cyclists completed the course (48.7 miles) without any major incidents and judging by the pledges the Organisers hope that the fundraising targets will be reached. It’s not too late to show your appreciation by making a donation in recognition of these sterling efforts. Please visit: www.mygift.org.uk/countycharitycycle
The fundraising event was set up to raise monies towards St Ann’s Hospice and Stockport County Supporters Co-operative. Everybody really enjoyed the day and it is hoped that this may become an annual fixture. The photograph attached shows the start of the race outside Edgeley Park with Rob Clare heading the field.
Sarah Bennett, Community Fundraising Officer for St Ann’s Hospice said “I just wanted to say congratulations on the event on Saturday. Not only did the weather hold off but everyone made it to the match (eventually!) in one piece! Please extend my thanks to all your volunteers and associated partners for the ride.”
Adrian Stores, Director, Stockport County Supporters Co-operative commented: “This really showed what Stockport County fans are all about. Everyone is justifiably proud of the day.”
