For most children, riding a bike is part and parcel of a ‘normal’ childhood. But for some children, those who live in Britain’s inner cities and suffer from financial or emotional hardship or are the primary carers of a sick relative, it isn’t a reality.
Honeypot is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of these vulnerable young children through respite care and a programme of long-term support. This includes annual visits to the Honeypot House based in the heart of the New Forest where the children have the opportunity to participate in activities they may never have done before such as making a cake, painting a picture or, simply, riding a bike.
In view of this, it is perhaps apt, that international real estate adviser, Savills, is organising charity London to Oxford bike ride fundraiser in aid of this very worthwhile charity. Open to Savills staff, clients, family and friends, the 62 mile charity cycle ride will take place on 13th September and the route will pass through central London, Northwood, Rickmansworth, Amersham and Beaconsfield before heading on towards the finish line in Oxford.
Event organiser, Caroline Copland of Savills Marketing, comments: “This is a wonderful and fun way for us to help raise funds for our corporate charity, Honeypot. Not only are we hoping to raise over £10,000 but we are also hoping that this cycle ride will become an annual event in our calendars.”
