Jacko's Tour de Prem

Monday 25 July 2016

Earlier this month, James Nutt undertook a gruelling 1000 mile cycling challenge in memory of his childhood best friend, and to raise money for Help for Heroes.

In November 2015, Jack Patrick, sadly passed away from a very rare illness called Good Pastures Syndrome. Endearingly known as Jacko, he was a dedicated fan of Leicester City Football Club, and after their incredibly successful 2015/16 Premiership campaign, James decided the best way to honour Jacko was to cycle to all 20 Premiership Football Clubs (2015/16 season) and to raise money for the charity that was so close to Jacko's heart.

Tour De Prem

Starting in Newcastle on 10th July, James visited both England and Wales on his trip, cycled into never-ending head winds, and battled the rain and hail of the Great British Summer! After criss-crossing the UK James made his way towards Leicester City's ground, 7 days after starting his challenge, with 30 riders by his side supporting his challenge and all joining to remember their friend.

James set himself a £1000 target for Jacko's chosen charity, however while on the road James captured people's heart and inspired them by the challenge he was undertaking in memory of his friend, and has so far raised over £10,000!

"It's been a week of pain I'll never forget for a best friend I will always remember" - James Nutt
