UK Cycling Challenge Visits Huyton

by Lisa Bennett

A team of cyclists from the 37th Signal Regiment passed through Huyton as part of a UK cycling challenge to raise money for the Royal Signals Benevolent Fund.

As part of the eight day challenge, the team of nine cyclists will cycle a route of 370 miles and will visit each Army Reserve Centre of the regiment, including the Alamein Barracks Army Reserve Centre in Huyton.

Cllr Frank Walsh, Mayor of Knowsley, met the team as they set off on their leg of the journey from Huyton towards Manchester.

So far, the team has raised more than £2000 for the Royal Signals Benevolent Fund and more than £3500 for local charities across the country.

Captain Andy Barnard, Operations Support Officer for the 37th Signals Regiment said

This is a great challenge that is improving fitness levels for army reserves as well as raising funds for the Royal Signals Benevolent Fund and local charities.

 

We’d like to thank everyone for their support as we make our way around the army reserve centres.

You can support the team on their Just Giving page.
