Brothers Darren and Nathan Gould are preparing to take on the TrekFest challenge, which consists of a 50km hike through the Brecon Beacons mountain ranges and Pen-Y-Fan, this coming July to raise money for Bristol Rovers Community Trust.
The season ticket holders are raising money for the Community Trust after experiencing first-hand the work which The Trust provides throughout Bristol, whilst solely relying on grants and donations. The Community Trust have also launched their ‘Just Giving’ page which gives supporters the opportunity to fundraise for the affiliated charity of Bristol Rovers. Whether it’s a bake sale, a video game tournament or a 50km Trek, every penny that you raise will go back into the Community.
Darren, an ex-Grenadier Guardsman told us “Initially we decided to take on this challenge to keep fit but then we saw the option of choosing to raise money for a chosen charity and obviously the club meaning so much to us, we decided to nominate Bristol Rovers Community Trust because of the fantastic work that they do.”
Community Trust education graduate and season ticket holder, Nathan Gould said “I think in the last year the Community Trust has come on leaps and bounds and we’ve seen the amazing opportunities that they offer to those who are less fortunate than most Any donation, big or small will go a long way, not only to help support myself and Darren but to the Community Trust as well. Preparations are going OK, but I know how difficult it’s going to be. Within the next couple of Month’s, we should be fit and ready to take on the challenge.”
Everyone at Bristol Rovers Community Trust would like to thank Darren and Nathan for their incredible gesture and we wish them a safe and enjoyable journey through the Brecon Beacons this Summer.
