Shaun’s show of support for Team Champion riders

A TEAM of cyclists will be looking good for a fundraising challenge in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity – thanks to former England and Hampshire cricket star Shaun Udal.

Shaun’s Cotton Graphics company has supplied the shirts that will be worn by the 26-strong Team Champion The Wacky Riders on the Bike 4 Cancer London to Brighton bike ride on Sunday.

The cycling fundraisers have received great backing from local businesses and individuals. The Champion Group, Loft Plan, John Reilly Civil Engineering Ltd, Chandler HP, Redrow Homes, and PB Edwards have all come on board with key sponsorship support.

Cotton Graphics, where Shaun is managing director, has kindly supplied the riders’ shirts featuring the logos of the main sponsors – and today (FRI) Perry Champion, director of Champion Group, was delighted to collect the shirts ahead of Sunday’s event.

Perry said: “Team Champion has had great support from local businesses and individuals, and we are grateful to Shaun and his team for supplying our cycling shirts. They look great and we will all be proud to wear them on Sunday.”

Shaun, whose company is based in The Loddon Centre, Stroudley Road, Basingstoke, added: “I am delighted that my team and I have been able to help and support Team Champion. They are raising money for a very good local cause, and I wish them every success with their cycling challenge.”

Mark Jones, director of fundraising and communications for Ark Cancer Centre Charity, said: “The charity is grateful to Shaun and his Cotton Graphics team, and all of the generous businesses and individual supporters who have got behind the Team Champion cyclists. The riders will certainly be looking good on Sunday.”

Starting on Clapham Common, the event route will take the riders through Mitcham, Carshalton, Chipstead, Banstead and Haywards Heath before finishing in front of Brighton Pier.

Along the way, the cyclists will have to tackle the fearsome Ditchling Beacon towards the end of the 58-mile journey – the highest point in East Sussex at 814 feet above sea level.

Anyone who wants to make a donation in support of the Team Champion riders can do so by going to

Ark Cancer Centre Charity’s £5million appeal will ensure a range of support services and complementary therapies are available alongside chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments in a calm and uplifting environment in the cancer treatment centre.

Largely being funded by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT), the new centre is earmarked for a location in the Basingstoke and Deane area, and if the preferred site near to Junction 7 of the M3 is approved, it will be easily accessible to everyone in the HHFT region.
