Events Crew support Yeovil Town Football Club (YTFC) Get Pedalling Charity Ride

In celebration of Yeovil Town Football Club’s last home match of the season, 16 Supporters undertook a three day ride from the home of match opponents Crewe Alexandra in aid of charity. The event was supported by Events Crew who provided logistics and ride support.

Events Crew, a logistics and Event Management Company from Henstridge in Somerset provided three branded support vehicles for the ride, 3 staff and one bike mechanic to ensure that all riders got to the finish line safely. Events Crew also took care of the on course logistics and day to day running of the event implementing the plan of YTFC.

Brent Mitchell, Director of Events Crew comments: “We have a long history of supporting sporting events locally, nationally and internationally. When we were asked to provide support to the riders and ensure their safety on the course, it gave us an opportunity to provide this experience for a worthy cause.”

Marilyn Cottle, the event organiser on behalf of YTFC commented: “Thank you so much for your help and support. We wouldn't have been able to do it without you! Your knowledge and experience was so important and I personally learnt a lot from the experience.”

The YTFC Get Pedalling Event was set up to raise funds for charity including St Margret’s Hospice, Brent continues “St Margret’s Hospice is a very worthwhile cause and Events Crew are always keen to support them. Sadly, one of the original team of Events Crew needed the care and support and we were always grateful for the incredible job they did in difficult circumstances.”

The riders set off from Gresty Road in Crewe at 7am for a scenic ride to Worcester. The following day the ride went from Worcester to Bath with the final day being from Bath to Yeovil in time for a welcome at the stadium at 12am.

The majority of the riders were novices, many having only taken up cycling in order to complete this challenge. This provided a whole set of new challenges as many riders were new to the rigours of road riding and also long distance point to point riding. However with the support, guidance and advice of Events Crew, the riders made it home in time for match.

Events Crew are a logistics and Event Management Company based out of Henstridge in Somerset. They offer a wide range of bespoke and off the shelf services depending on client needs and goals. Events Crew have a wide ranging client base including Balfour Beatty, IRONMAN, POWERMAN, Mitsubishi, Great Dorset Steam Fair and TT Triathlon.
