Danny Washbrook taking on Tour De Yorkshire for charity

Drew Darbyshire

York forward Danny Washbrook will cycle the distance of the Tour De Yorkshire in his back garden for charity.

The 34-year-old will take on the challenge over a 38-day period, covering 10 miles per day from April 20.

Washbrook has set up a JustGiving page to raise money for the NHS and Dove House Hospice.

He said: “So I have decided, as the Tour de Yorkshire has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak, I will cycle the length of the Tour in my back garden.

“The 380 miles will be split into 10 miles per day on my rolling road for 38 consecutive days from Monday, April 20.

“I am doing this to raise money for two places I believe do great work, Dove House Hospice and NHS Charities Together. They both rely on funding to do their fantastic jobs as well as they can.

“So please sponsor me whatever you can and let’s raise some well-needed funds at this crucial time for both these places.”
