Riding For Bluebell Wood

30 August 2013

Sponsored by

Season Ticket Holder Andy Sly is undertaking a massive triathlon this season on behalf of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

As a warm up for this, Andy will be doing a static bike ride at tomorrow’s match outside the Belle Vue Bar.

Please support Andy’s efforts in this fundraising event on behalf of the club’s Official Charity Partner.

Andy Sly a Rovers fan of nearly 40 years is taking part in this year’s Toon to Town challenge, read more at  and select Andy’s name from the green list on the left. 

Andy is doing this to raise money for Rovers’ official Charity for the year, Bluebell Wood Hospice, a very deserving cause. At this point Andy has already raised well over £440, taking Gift Aid into account, £130 of this coming through donations from Rovers fans on the VSC forum website. 

There is also at least another £200 pledged through sponsorship, so a target of a £1,000 looks possible.

The challenge this year consists of a mammoth triathlon, including a mile swim in London, followed by an epic cycle ride from the Capital to Newcastle along a near 400 mile route to avoid the busiest roads, before several of the group will run the Great North Run half marathon. 

This all takes place between the 8th and 15th September, for anyone interested Andy will be doing updates on the cycle progress throughout the week on his Facebook page.

Andy will be at the Keepmoat today riding a static bike, with helpers on hand with collecting buckets, all donations gratefully accepted. Otherwise you can donate through his virgin money giving page.
