Hill Billy smash Open cycle challenge for charity

Whilst the world’s best golfers focus on The Open Championship next week, golf trolley brand Hill Billy has paid its own tribute to the event by completing a gruelling 425-mile virtual charity cycle from its base in Kent to Royal Troon Golf Club in just 20 hours – all whilst dressed in a goat costume!

Raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a team of eight people from Hill Billy completed long stints on an exercise bike to complete the 425 mile challenge. Wearing a goat costume that honours the brand’s logo, the Hill Billy team recorded an impressive average speed of 21.25 mph during the immensely-challenging cycle, which finished on Friday morning.

Hill Billy and Macmillan Cancer Support are still appealing for more donations from the public and will be leaving their Just Giving page open until after The Open Championship concludes.

“We knew the challenge was going to be a tough one, but we’re very proud of our achievement and what we’ve done for Macmillan Cancer Support,” said Mei Tierney, Hill Billy Marketing Manager. “Wearing that goat costume made things a little hotter than we wanted, but thanks to some great team spirit we powered through.”
