Huddersfield Town's fundraising partnership with Yorkshire Air Ambulance is to continue for another three years.
It was launched back in 2009 to help raise money for the charity and at the same time generate funds for Huddersfield Town’s Youth Academy,
It was announced this year that the campaign had raised more than £1 million through a series of charity cycle rides covering hundreds of miles across the UK.
The most recent ride saw nearly 300 cyclists embark on the ‘Chapman Trail’ cycling the 250 miles back to Huddersfield’s John Smith Stadium from Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium in London.
Over the five ‘Pedal for Pounds’ rides, 635 different cyclists have taken part, covering a total of 1,250 miles and raising in excess of £700,000 to the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.
– Paul Gowland, YAA Director of Fundraising
We are absolutely delighted that HTAFC is looking to continue our partnership for at least another three years. When we launched the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign five years ago none of us quite knew just how successful it was going to be – so to be extending that to at least eight years is phenomenal. HTAFC staff and fans have very much become part of the YAA family over the years and we are looking forward to seeing what the next three years bring.
Yorkshire have built a big lead going into tomorrow's final day of their County Championship match against Middlesex at Scarborough. Skipper Andew Gale's unbeaten 126 helped Yorkshire close the day on 400 for 5 in their second innings.
Leeds Rhinos and England captain Kevin Sinfield will miss the next two games after being sent off for a headbutt in Thursday's draw with Castleford.
He had been facing a maximum three game ban after being charged with a Grade C offence, but submitted an Early Guilty Plea to the Rugby Football League.
It means although he will miss the games against Salford and Bradford he WILL be available for next month's Challenge Cup semi-final against Warrington.
York City Council is to host its first ever celebration of sports for people with disabilities. The week long event is being put on to meet the growing take-up of sport and opportunities for disabled people in the town. It will take place from Monday August 4, 2014 to Sunday August 10, 2014.

Hull City will publicly unveil their three summer signings - England international Jake Livermore, former Leeds United captain Robert Snodgrass and England under 21 star Tom Ince - later today.
The Tigers will also launch their new kit for the forthcoming season.
Bradford Bulls' Lee Gaskell and Dale Ferguson have today committed their futures to the club, after agreeing new contracts.
The pair have each put pen to paper on fresh two-year deals, keeping them at the Provident Stadium until at least the end of the 2016 season.
Bradford's relegation from Super League was all but confirmed when they suffered a sixth straight defeat in a scrappy, high-scoring derby at Huddersfield.
A 52-26 loss at the John Smith's Stadium leaves the Bulls 13 points from safety with just six matches left and effectively ends their 40-year stay in the top flight of rugby league.
Crowds have lined the streets to show support for those taking part in this year's Leeds 10K. Ten thousand runners, some more serious than others, hit the streets of the city centre this morning for the race which is part of the Jane Tomlinson Run for All series.

Thousands of runners are on their marks and all set to take part in one of the North's top charity runs. Up to 10,000 people are expected to take part in the Asda Foundation Leeds 10K - the flagship 10K event of organisers Jane Tomlinson's Run For All - today. It begins near the Grand Arcade in Vicar Lane.
