A Norwich bank has given a �1,500 boost to the 'Back to Bayern' bike ride by Canaries legend Jeremy Goss to raise money for blind people in Norfolk.
The NatWest commercial business team in Norwich chose the Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB) to receive the proceeds of its charity golf day.
Mr Goss, who is now events fundraiser for the charity, is planning the 1,300-mile cycle ride back to Munich, the scene of his famous goal against German giants Bayern Munich during City's 1993 Uefa Cup run.
Mr Goss said: 'This has given us a real boost and kick start. This is a substantial amount of money and we are grateful to NatWest.'
The bank's relationship director, Richard Innes, said: 'We are very pleased to be supporting NNAB and Jeremy in raising money and reliving the Bayern days.' Jeremy is pictured with Richard Innes and Rob Taylor, manager at Cycle UK, the firm which has donated Jeremy's bike and equipment for the ride.
