Kent cricketers to take part in PCA Big Bike Ride for charities

Thursday 1st October 2015

Kent cricketers past and present are taking part in the 370-mile PCA Bike Ride next weekend in aid of the Tom Maynard Trust and the PCA Benevolent Fund.

Tammy Beaumont, Matt Coles, Lydia Greenway, David Griffiths and Rob Key will be riding from Truro to the Oval alongside former Kent captain David Fulton, ex-Kent wicketkeeper Geraint Jones and dozens of pro cricketers.

Kent and England star Beaumont said: “The PCA Benevolent Fund and the Tom Maynard Trust are two great charities which do great things for the game I love.

“Any donations would be gratefully received and will spur me on up all the horrid hills in Cornwall and Devon.”

Spitfire Player of the Year Coles said: “If it's anything like the last one it will be just as fun but also painful! Please show some support by donating. Every little helps.”

Fast bowler David Griffiths said: “I am currently recovering from my back operation and this bike ride is a personal goal at the end of all the hard work from my rehab.”

Former club captain Rob Key said: “This is the first time I've had to actually do anything that resembles hard work in my life.

“I've only just bought a bike and riding to the local pub has nearly destroyed my backside.

“Goodness knows how I will make 80 plus miles a day. Joking aside, your support can make the difference to so many people.”
