LFC fans raise money for charity with Wembley cycle at Anfield
A group of Liverpool supporters recently completed a grueling bike ride from Wembley to Anfield to raise money for charity.
The Red Indians have surpassed their initial fundraising target of £ 10,000 for the colossal race, which they concluded at L4 last month.
After starting their journey at Wembley, the riders visited the homes of MK Dons, Leicester City and Crewe Alexandra en route to Anfield.
And when Ash Thakrar, Jay Kanabar, Raj Chavda, Ariff Razzaq, Chetan Shah, Lalit Mandalia and their support team arrived on the LFC pitch, they were warmly greeted by club legend John Barnes.
So far, over £ 20,000 has been raised through the cycle, with funds going to four charitable causes – Fans Supporting Foodbanks, The Toy Appeal, Project GIVING and 23 Foundation.
Raj Gandhi, president of the LFC Red Indians, said: “A lot of runners achieved more than their usual personal best every day, so it was a very, very proud moment for all – in terms of the training they had. put and the effort they made for the causes.
“John Barnes has been a hero to many of the supporters who have been on this ride. For us it was only a blessing to be greeted by him just in case.
“Seeing one of our old school heroes greet us and come out with the jokes and the commentary was just fascinating. It was a really nice touch to what had been a truly amazing trip.
“Thanks to the large amount that we have raised, we have also been able to help a number of other causes and we continue to do so. We are looking to do something for children, working alongside Homebaked, in a few weeks. and do something for the children of Liverpool as well. “
