Brewery owners help to raise £9k for charity

Posted by Wold Top Brewery on

An epic cycling challenge involving an East Yorkshire brewing couple has raised over £9,000 for charity.

On 29th April, a team of eight, including Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery directors Tom and Gill Mellor arrived at John O'Groats having ridden 1,100 miles from Lands End to raise money for Prostate UK and Breast Cancer Campaign.

The team, which completed the challenging ride in only 14 days, comprised Tom and Gill, Dave and Sue Morgan from Kilham, George and Karen Hamilton from Driffield, Robin and Colette Freeman from Hutton Cranswick. The average age of the team was mid 50s.

Gill, who celebrated her 51st birthday during the ride, reflected on the journey; "We were fortunate in that we had fantastic weather and a great support crew. We were also knocked out by the beautiful countryside that we have here - the UK really is an amazing place to live! Tom and I are looking to revisiting some of the stunning places that we cycled through - although next time, we'll take the car!"

All of the funds raised will be split equally between Prostate UK and Breast Cancer Campaign. If you would like to donate, please send a cheque made payable to Sue Morgan at Pockthorpe Hall, Pockthorpe, Kilham, Driffield, East Yorkshire, YO25 4SX or donate online at or
