Sports Travel International Support #Mission676

SPORTS Travel International has joined Cambridge United Community Trust's #MISSION676 by becoming a Bronze Sponsor of Jez George’s incredible challenge.
The specialist sports tour operator will welcome Jez as he returns from his monumental 26 Marathons in 26 days challenge and joins a Champagne Gala Dinner at the R Costings Abbey Stadium tonight.

Jez is walking from Newcastle United FC to Norwich City FC, via every English Premier League stadium – an incredible 676 miles – raising funds for Cambridge United’s Community Trust.  You can follow Jez’s exploits along the way, via Twitter, Facebook and the U's website.
Jez's mammoth walk will give the Community Trust the financial platform to impact the lives of over 10,000 people in Cambridge’s community through a series of programmes for young offenders, children at risk of exclusion, ethnic minority groups, disability groups, the  homeless and people living in areas of deprivation.

Ashley Gowing, Managing Director at the specialist sports tour operator Sports Travel International comments: 
“We’re delighted to support Jez in his supreme effort to complete #Mission676. Of course we are thrilled to be backing the tremendous work of the Youth and Community Trust in its mission to encourage more young local people to participate in sport. At Sports Travel International we’ve enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the youth development programme at the club as well as a great affinity with many of the schools and sports clubs within the region and hope that Jez’s walk proves the catalyst for great things for the local community moving forwards.”   

Sports Travel International has become the latest company to support #Mission676, joining Sepura, Premier Holidays, Mick George, Savills, Ridgeons, Cambs FA, Grosvenor and Wrenbridge.  Other groups such as R Costings, MayiClaim, David Lloyd Cambridge and ARM are participating in different fundraising events throughout the mission.
