DESERVED APPLAUSE was enjoyed by all the cyclists who completed the 300 Miles 3 Days challenge at Stoke City's game with Fulham at the Britannia Stadium yesterday.
It was a fitting reward for those who had set off from Glasgow early on Thursday morning to make the gruelling journey south in order to raise as much money for charity as possible.
Earlier on in the morning, they had departed Preston on the final stage of their trek and made it to Stoke-on-Trent before kick off, to rest their legs and soak in the first half of the Potters' game against the Cottagers.
Then followed the short journey to the halfway line at the break as the largest gathering of fans at the Britannia this season showed plenty of appreciation for their efforts.
A Gala Dinner at the Moat House last night then concluded this year's fundraising efforts, which will see money raised split between the Club's Community Trust and the Rangers' Charity Foundation.
Donations can still be made to the cause though, and supporters are encouraged to give whatever they can via the 300 Miles 3 Days Just Giving page HERE.
The cycle challenge is being supported by Marbill Coaches, Evans Halshaw, Brian Rourke, Longstaff cycles, Enterprise rent a car, Pure Gym Stoke, Nuffield Health, Provision cycle clothing, the Louden Tavern, Coopers Bar Wishaw and PREM Management.
