15 of the Crown team are partaking in the 100-mile bike ride on the 21st May 2021 which will see them bike from Ilfracombe, across Devon and ending up in Plymouth over a 2-day period.
Acorn’s Children’s Hospice provide specialist palliative care for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people and support for their families. Children visit Acorns for respite, short breaks, end of life and emergency care, whilst providing families with a much-needed break from caring round the clock.
Making up part of the team is Chasetown FC Midfielder Jack Langston. Alongside playing for Chasetown, Jack works for Crown Highways as their Transport Manager.
Langston commented saying; “It’s something I’m really looking forward to taking part in. It’s going to be a great challenge to complete 100 miles in 2 days across Devon, it won’t be easy but it’s something as a team we can accomplish together.
"It’s for such a good cause and I’m glad that we can help a great charity in the local area. It’s nice to know that the money that we raise will have a massive effect on the children and the families who use Acorns.
"The training and motivation for this challenge will also help keep me fit and ready for when the football season finally kicks back in gear whenever that may be.”
Riding alongside Jack is Crown Highways Chairman, Steve Jones and Procurement Manager, Richard Lamb who are both friendly faces around the Chasetown FC ground.
Crown have set a target of £10,000 to raise for the hospice and are seeking any donations that you may be able to give.
