Swindon Robins commercial manager Lee Kilby said he has been overwhelmed by the support he has received for his fundraising walk for the injured Mitchel Davey.
Following Davey’s accident during Birmingham’s National league Knockout Cup clash against Mildenhall, Kilby decided walk 72 miles from Birmingham’s Perry Barr Stadium to Swindon’s Abbey Stadium to raise funds for the injured Aussie rider.
And Kilby’s fantastic effort has now raised over £17,000, an amount way and beyond anything the Robins commercial manager expected.
“It is mind blowing, to get to £17,000 is phenomenal and it means Mitch can relax through his rehab, means he can take his time, he doesn’t need to rush through and he and Donna don’t need to worry about money,” said Kilby.
“It is a huge amount of money and I am incredibly grateful, so is Mitch, he doesn’t know what to say.”
Kilby has also been pleased to see more numbers coming through the gates at The Abbey Stadium and revealed that the focus will remain on encouraging youngsters to come and watch the Robins along with trying to get through meetings a little quicker to enable earlier finishes for everyone.
