Celebrating Cycling the Season

Tuesday 11th July 2017

Over 7,000 miles, 550 hours in the saddle, two wheel changes and a massive £17k raised for Contact a Family!

Our phenomenal fundraiser Stephen Kingdom popped into Contact a Family's City Road offices on Thursday 6th July so we could all say a big thank you and celebrate the completion of his epic cycling challenge with him.


Stephen spent the last 10 months 'Cycling the Season' - pedalling his way to and from every single Crystal Palace home and away match of the Premier League season to raise vital funds for Contact a Family.

He attended 42 games in total and spent around 550 hours in the saddle while travelling the equivalent distance of the length of Great Britain, 8 times! 

So far Stephen has raised over £17,000, with donations still coming in. Not only did he raise a fantastic amount of money, but a huge amount of awareness for Contact a Family too.

Luckily you don't have to cycle 7000 miles to raise money to help us reach even more families with disabled children with the help, advice and information they want and need. We have a range of fundraising events and activities you can get involved with. If you'd like to find out more about the fundraising opportunities we offer or want to take up a challenge on behalf of Contact a Family we'd love to hear from you. Get in touch!
