Three Royston residents have raised £1600 for Hatfield-based charity KitAid after successfully travelling to all 20 Premier League stadiums in 24 hours over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Greneway Middle School teachers Ashley Judge and Rob Dowler and their friend, Ian Horncastle embarked on the challenge in memory of Ashley’s uncle, Guy, who passed away last March after a two-year battle with cancer.
Guy was a keen supporter of KitAid, a charity that collects football kits and sends them to less priviliged places in the world.
Having began their journey at Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium at 6pm on Saturday, they ended at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium 23 hours 10 minutes later.
The lads then unofficially ended their charity drive at Watford’s Vicarage Road as a further tribute to Guy, a passionate Hornets fan.
