NSPCC Big Bike Day
Category: Childline, Childrens Charities, NSPCC
Why not help provide a better future for children across the country and join the NSPCC’s annual ‘Big Bike Ride’?
On the weekend of June 27th-29th, thousands of people around the UK will be cycling to help raise funds for the children’s charity. The Big Bike Ride is now into its 3rd year, and last year alone more than £175,000 was raised. To put that figure into perspective, this funding helped answer an extra 50,000 calls from children in need of advice on any number of issues, ranging from parental abuse to bullying.
The 3 main rides are taking place in Cardiff, Newcastle and Sussex, whilst another 30 local rides are planned across the length and breadth of the country. From Aberdeen to Ireland, from Coventry to Kimmel Bay, people will be riding bikes of all shapes and sizes to help stop cruelty to children.
If you’re unavailable for that weekend, or just fancy doing something different, why not organise your own Big Bike Ride? Grab some friends or work colleagues, plan your route, get sponsored, and help raise funds for the NSPCC in your own unique way. If you’re feeling competitive you could organise a race, or maybe a fancy dress cycle, it’s up to you.
So why not get on your bike and have some fun whilst raising funds, your ride WILL make a difference.
