Coventry City fans donate £600 in two days as Tynan Scope breaks the £2500 barrier with a day to go!

5 June 2014

The corporate sales manager has praised the generosity of City fans as he sets off for Amsterdam tomorrow...

Thanks to the support of Coventry City fans, corporate sales manager Tynan Scope has bypassed the £2500 mark after an incredible £600 was donated in the last two days.

Scope will be saddling up to take on a mammoth 150-mile trip from London to Amsterdam, alongside plenty of other riders including former England and AC Milan striker Luther Blissett for PCUK tomorrow.

Tynan will be joined by City fan Andy Burton on the ride and they will set off from London at 6:15am tomorrow morning to cycle over 150 miles to Amsterdam.

The bike ride starts at Leyton Orient's Matchroom Stadium and finishes at the home of Eredivise Champions Ajax, the Amsterdam Arena.

Having just passed the £2,500 mark and set a new target of £3000, Tynan thanked everyone who has donated and has praised the generosity of City fans.

Scope said: "To raise over £600 in the final two days has been incredible. I've been watching it rise over the last few days and I'd just like to thank everyone who has donated.

"Loads of Coventry City fans have been in touch via twitter and my donation page, and the support they're showing has really been crucial in the whole training process.

"Of course, you can still donate during the ride over the weekend so if we could get up to £3000, that would be great.

"I'm a bit nervous as even though I've trained hard, you can never be sure that it is enough. The support I've received from everyone will give me the strength I need to make it to Amsterdam."

If you haven't donated yet, don't worry as the donation page is still open. Please visit http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/TynanScope to donate.
