Community Matters P&G Charity Awards Night

Last night Just Ride Southend volunteers attended P&G’s annual Community Matters Charity Awards Night.
The event from start to finish was flawless. P&G had invited various local charities along to show their appreciation for everything they do. P&G donated an astonishing £57,000!
We are delighted to say that Just Ride received £10,000! This money is going to go towards the purchase of a new wheelchair power assisted bike.
We are all so grateful for everything P&G have done for Just Ride and a special thank you to Jo Dunn for nominating us.
It was wonderful to see so many great charities getting the recognition they deserve. It was a night to remember!

Thorpe Bay Rotary Club

Last year we received a wonderful donation from Thorpe Bay Rotary Club. We have decided to invest the £500 donation into sending our volunteer John on a Cytech bike course. He will become a qualified bike mechanic at the end of it. Wishing him the best of luck and thanks again for all your support! Every donation really does matter. 💚

We had a crazy idea….

As some of you already know Just Ride Southend are taking on a huge challenge this year… we are going to cycle to Manchester in a day!

June 2019 we will be completing our 250 mile cycle in one day as a relay team. If we use all the daylight hours around midsummer we need to average 15mph to achieve our goal. Not Tour de France speeds but still a very real challenge on roads that are open to traffic.

Our number will include three tandems as well as solo riders. The tandems will include an all female bike, a visually impaired rider and one of our trustees who has Cerebral Palsy.

Simply Cycling (based in Manchester) were our inspiration and mentors from the beginning. It’s our 5th and their 15th anniversary next year so this challenge is the perfect opportunity to fundraise and celebrate all we have achieved.

Simply cycling are going to travel over a number of days and arrive as a team and then stay over with us. We are all so excited!

Here’s Gwen and Helen, first practice run on the tandem!

🎉🎉 GREAT NEWS! 🎉🎉

We are delighted to announce that Just Ride Southend have been selected as a finalist for Procter & Gamble’s Community Matters Charity Awards!

Procter & Gamble will be doing some filming at the track on Saturday 10th November, so please all show them your biggest smiles, as always!

If you do not wish to be on film please take the necessary precautions to avoid being in the shot.
