It’s Uphill Work For Chris!


Chris Black, Managing Director of Sound Leisure, is planning a 260-mile cycle ride from Yeovil to Huddersfield in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Huddersfield Town’s Youth Academy.

 This is not the first time Chris has taken to the saddle for charity. Previously, he cycled 125 miles down the Leeds to Liverpool Canal for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

“I was talked into this by my nephew Joe who has signed for Huddersfield Town F.C. and plays for the under 18s. He told me about the work the club did for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and roped me and his dad in – now the reality of riding 260-plus miles uphill from Devon to Yorkshire is really kicking in!”

Chris has already ordered his new racer bike and has set up a Just Giving page in order to try and raise £1000 towards the appeal.

“I know times are hard but anything you give will be greatly appreciated, I can assure everyone this is going to be a hard challenge and I would not be going through with it if I didn’t believe that the cause was a good one,” says Chris.

The ride takes place in May and if anyone fancies sponsoring Chris they can log onto his Just Giving account
