Cycling for Charity
Posted on 6th March 2020 at 12:45
A personal message from our local Mondelez International (Cadbury's Bournville) Community Champion Michael Huggins re his up and coming cycling charity for four charities including Cerebral Palsy Midlands.
Apart from my love for Aston Villa my other sporting passion is cycling. Now some of you may remember that I was the guy who cycled to Wembley for the past two play-off finals for charity, I did not last week as I have a new challenge ahead which I am pleased to announce today.
At the end of April I will be cycling to every Premier League Football Ground for Charity.
I will not be on my own so I will be putting football rivalries aside and joining me on this challenge will be Birmingham City fan Steve Davies and West Bromwich Albion supporter Sophia Hussain who is the Team Director & organiser.
The charities we are fundraising for are:
Acorns Children’s Hospice
Cerebral Palsy Midlands

The three of us begin our cycling challenge on the Saturday 25th April from Bournemouth FC & finishing at Newcastle FC on the Saturday 2nd May covering a distance of 800 miles in just one week!
25th of April we will cycle from Bournemouth to Southampton ending at Brighton.
26th of April our route takes us to Crystal Palace, Chelsea, West Ham, Arsenal, Tottenham & ending at Watford.
27th of April we have the long ride to Norwich.
28th of April we cycle to Leicester.
29th of April we head to The Home of English Football Villa Park 🥳 and then onto Wolverhampton. (We aim to arrive at Villa Park at around 10am & there maybe so media waiting for us so if you are free please come and give us a cheer).
30th of April we cycle to Liverpool stopping at Sheffield United, Man City, Man U and then onto Everton.
1st of May we go to Burnley.
2nd of May, our last day we finish at Newcastle.
We are asking for a donation of £4 per person (£1 for each charity) but if you are feeling generous a larger donations are most welcome. If you donate please leave the name of the team you support so we can see which team has the most generous Supporters. You can donate on this link below:
Find out more about the Premier League Pedal here and you can follow our progress on my Twitter: @michaelah1874 plus I will update you all on here.
I believe we will have a few words on our adventure in the match day program against Chelsea and we have a photo opportunity on the pitch at half time so if you see me climbing over the fence I am not running onto the pitch.
Thank You UTV for your support.
