Royals supporter Matthew Paterson-Borland is joining four members of staff here at Reading Football Club in taking on the Prostate Cancer UK Football to Amsterdam challenge at the start of June!
The two-day event will see riders battle the 145-mile route between London's Olympic Park and the Amsterdam ArenA, all in the name of raising money for EFL Charity partners, Prostate Cancer UK.
Graham Griffin, Richard Dorman, Leigh Morgan and Tom Law will all be joining the hundreds of football fans from across EFL clubs expected to take part in the charitable event, running from June 1st-3rd.
And Matthew, who has been a Season Ticket Holder for more than 15 years now, is also joining the group – raising money for a charity which remains close to his heart after prostate cancer tragically led to the passing of his best friend from school.
Last year, 380 football fans took part in the ride and raised more than £600,000 for the cause, making it the ride of a lifetime for those completing the journey.
And the cause is a very worthy one - prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the UK, and it kills one man every 45 minutes. Your kind donations will be helping researching and combatting one of the most common killers in the UK.
If you wish to donate to the cause, head to www.justgiving.com/teams/royals2amsterdam2018 and keep up with our staff quartet’s progress, while Matthew is hoping to add to the £800 raised to date at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rfcoldboys
