Our Bikeathon Challenge in Aid of the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity

A little while back we got asked by the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity if we would like to get involved in their corporate challenge. This involves us taking £50 and turning it into £1000 or more. So far, we have manged to pass the £500 mark and next on our list of events is a sponsored bikeathon.

The Corporate Challenge

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is currently trying to raise funds for a social room and roof terrace in their new Liverpool hospital. Their aim is to lessen the sense of isolation cancer patients can often experience during their treatment. Their target is £40,000 and hopefully we at Transglobal Express can help them achieve their goal.

The Bikeathon

One of our main fundraising event ideas was a bikeathon and seeing as we have two offices, one in Bromborough in the UK, and another in Kelsterbach, Germany, we thought it would be a good idea to cycle the distance between the two offices. According to Google maps, this is approximately 697 miles by bike.

Currently, we have 28 volunteers prepared to take it in turns, on an exercise bike, to achieve the distance. We will be starting the challenge on Monday 27th March and will be cycling throughout normal working hours (8am-6.30pm) of that week.

Our Managing Director has also pledged that Transglobal Express will match whatever we raise.

How to Support Us

If you would like to sponsor us or donate, you can do so via our Just Giving page. All donations go directly to the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

Updates will be posted on our Twitter and Facebook feeds as the event takes place. Please feel free to share our posts to help spread the word.
