Winner of bike raffle for Prostate Cancer UK announced

Mrs Greenslade wins the raffle prize

For the past few weeks, regular supporters will have noticed the bike raffle ticket sale going on outside the ground on matchdays.  The raffle, which raised over £1,000 for Prostate Cancer UK and Exeter City’s Football in the Community (FITC), was duly drawn at the FITC 6-a-side tournament last Sunday.  The lucky winner with ticket number 0665 was Mrs Greenslade of Topsham.

So congratulations, Mrs Greenslade – we hope you and your family make good use of the bike!  For those who weren’t so lucky, thanks very much for buying raffle tickets and contributing to a very worthwhile cause.

The bike raffle was part of fund raising by our three supporter/representatives who are undertaking the challenge of cycling 150 miles from London to Amsterdam in just two days this summer.  The challenge, organised by the Football League, is part of fundraising for their nominated charity this season, Prostate Cancer UK.  So far there are 160 entrants, representing 55 of the 72 Football League clubs, including Luther Blissett, the ex-Watford and England striker, and Micky Adams, the current Port Vale manger.

There will be more on our website shortly as to how our three are getting on.  Our representatives are Richard Horne, from the ECFC back office, Liz Hodges, proprietor of the cycle-themed Route 2 Café in Topsham, and Graham Heysett, a steward on the Big Bank on match days, all pictured above with assistant manager Rob Edwards and midfielder Matt Gill.  There are just five weeks to go before the big challenge leaves from London.
