Ben Harper

Youngest Yellow Hatter leads long distance cycle ride


At 11 years old, our youngest yellow hatter, Ben Harper, lead a team of four cyclists taking on a 160 mile challenge cycling from Switzerland, via Austria, to Germany over four days at the end May 2016.  The Tyroleon Tour event is Ben's idea to help raise funds for MNDA Motor Neurone Disease Association and to raise awareness of Organ Donation by supporting #believe.


The event, though impaired by a little poor weather, went fantasically well with a mainly flat route, through beautiful surroundings and great hostipality.


Ben had a modest target of £300 to raise for MND and to date he has more than doubled the amount raised.  Over 1500 people were reached with the organ donation awareness message and conversations have been had and the organ donation register has a few more on it...


Thank You
