Hull fundraisers who organised an alternative Grand Depart during the Tour de France have raised over £20,000.

More than 60 cyclists with different abilities, ages and fitness levels took part in the Tribune Trail, which covered 35 miles from Brocklesby, near Grimsby, and ended at Rise Hall in Holderness.

The event, on 20 July, was organised High Sheriffs’ and Humberside Police Tribune Trust after members were inspired by the Tour de France.

And now all the funds have been collected, they are ready to be given out by the Trust to charities and organisations that support its aim of promoting safer communities.

Commenting on the event, Hugh Bethell, Chairman of the Tribune Trust, said that while this Depart may not have been as Grand as the other event, it was still a huge local success.

He added that every penny of the £20,000 that had been raised would go to good causes.

And he expressed his sincere thanks to all those who had sponsored riders or made donations, those who had taken part and also the organisations and individuals who had supported the event as marshals.
