Our cycling superfan Mark Crowther has announced the final total for the fundraising he has undertaken by travelling on his bike to all of the Hatters' away matches during the 2021-22 season - an amazing £15,295!
Mark pedalled to all 25 away matches in the league, FA Cup and play-offs that he could attend in person, and even made the journey to Hull City a week after Town had played there having been prevented from travelling at the time due to Covid.
He cycled 2,970 miles over 202 hours, burning 87,375 calories in the process, and fully deserved to be on the shortlist of three people up for the Supporter of the Season accolade at the EFL Awards held in April.
He was also awarded the prestigious Kevin Catlin Memorial Trophy at the Luton Town Supporters' Trust presentation evening last month, for his efforts in raising funds for Keech Hospice Care, CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) and Prostate Cancer UK.
