Soccer fans Seb and Alistair Cope pedal their Penny Farthings from Derby County to Aston Villa
Penny farthing enthusiasts and football fans Seb Cope and his dad Alistair cycled from Derby County’s ground to Aston Villa at the weekend to raise money for a worthy cause.
Seb, 35, a member of the lifeboat crew in Lyme Regis, and Alistair, 59, from Seaton, raised more than £200 for the Aston Villa Foundation community charity during their 50-mile cycle ride.
Seb, whose great, great grandfather was born just yards from Villa Park, said: “We cycled on roads, paths and canal towpaths and had a great reception from people along the way, and especially football fans.”
On the way to Aston Villa the pair stopped at the National Arboretum where Seb paid his respects at the RNLI memorial.
