24 Hour Cycling Fundraiser | Tom Maynard Trust & GCC

Posted by:

A quick update further to my message regarding the 24h cycle. Due to council commitments this will now be held on the following weekend (19th – 20th March). The links remain the same & a copy of my previous email is below for reference. Please note this is a static cycling event.

0900h Sat 19 March – 0900h Sun 20 March 2016

From 9am on Saturday 19th March until 9am on 20th March 2016 we will be holding a GCC 24 hour static cycling fundraiser in Guildford to raise money to undertake vital maintenance & repairs to the nets at Guildford CC as well as for the Tom Maynard Trust.

The Tom Maynard Trust was set up initially to help the development of aspiring disadvantaged cricketers and other sportspeople who require support with different aspects of their career development, including bursaries, help with training and education, financial support for overseas placements and assistance with kit and equipment. Its work now includes support for education and development programmes across a number of professional sports and the running of an annual Tom Maynard Academy in Spain.

Where is it?

We will be in Guildford Town Centre during the day & then retreat to the clubhouse for the evening & over night.

How can you help?

This is where we need your help, we need cyclists as well as supporters able to hold a bucket & increase awareness of our event. Below is a link to our Doodle Scheduler, please do go through & next to your name either put ‘Cyclist’, ‘Supporter’ or ‘Both’. There are 30 min time slots all the way through from 8am on Saturday to 10am on Sunday so you can do as many or as few slots as you like! We’d love to see as many of you as possible.

Whilst we would love all age groups to get involved there is a height requirement for the bike and as such the cycling element is limited to age 14+, (Under 18s must have parental consent). However all ages are welcome to come down & support the event. We would also be delighted if any friends or family want to add a bit of pedal power or support.

What about fundraising?

We will have buckets for the fundraising, but we’d also like your friends & family to get sponsoring the team of cyclists. We have a go fund me page set up, alternatively sponsorship forms are available on request:


Huge thank you in advance to all those who are able to give their time to this event.

All efforts & donations will be very appreciated.

Any questions please shout
