Henderson Property founder and managing director Graeme Henderson recently joined more than 250 cyclists to raise much-needed funds for the Huddersfield Town Foundation and Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The 6th annual Pedal for Pounds charity bike ride, dubbed Tower to Tower, took place on May 1-2 and saw participants complete a 140-mile round trip from Victoria Tower in Huddersfield to Blackpool Tower.
A true family affair, Graeme’s team members included his father John Henderson and brother Gareth, managing director of national energy broking firm Orchard Energy. Together, they raised more than £1,500 for charity.
The riders left Castle Hill on Saturday morning, cycling through Ainley Top, Sowerby Bridge, Accrington, Blackburn and Preston. The following day cyclists watched Huddersfield Town’s final game of the season against Blackpool before completing the ride back to the John Smith’s Stadium.
Speaking about the bike ride Graeme said: “I am not a keen cyclist but I saw this as a huge personal challenge whilst at the same time raising vital funds for a life-saving charity. The event’s organisation by HTAFC was excellent and this was a huge team effort and a massive achievement by everyone involved.”
