Around the Grounds in 14 days: Day one12th May, 2014 by Lauren Eads
Today, the chairman of The Benevolent, Chris Porter, set off on a challenge to visit all 91 of the UK’s league football grounds in 14 days without a car to raise funds for the drinks industry charity.
The Around the Grounds in 14 Days challenge will see Chris use only a combination of train, tram and pedal-bike to visit each of the UK’s league football grounds, starting today at Norwich City Football Club, and finishing at Crystal Palace Football Club on Sunday 25 May.
The challenge has already raised nearly £6,000 for the charity which supports members of the drinks industry in need. To make a donation, click here.
The drinks business will be posting daily updates as Chris makes his way around the UK.
