Computershare cycling challenge raises more than £5,300 for Bristol’s youngsters!

Cycling enthusiasts working at the Bristol-based company, Computershare, have raised thousands of pounds for Young Bristol.

More than 40 of the company’s employees set off on two wheels from the global financial services firm’s Bedminster Down offices to raise money for the charity, which works to offer a choice of opportunities and experiences for young people aged eight to 25.

The ‘On Yer Bike’ event, which involved challenging routes of 20, 30 or 75 miles around Chew Valley Lake, the Mendip Hills and Cheddar Gorge via Congresbury, culminated in a celebratory BBQ that also provided the opportunity for cyclists to meet the charity’s representatives and learn more about its work.

The day raised £5,300 for the organisation, which is one of Computershare’s designated local charities, which benefits from donations via the company’s corporate giving programme, Change A Life.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Computershare for choosing our charity as a beneficiary from their fundraising event. Computershare’s donation will enable us to continue to provide freely available, community-driven activities for young people during after school hours, which provide a really important opportunity for development and learning.”

Lucy Saunders, Young Bristol

We are really pleased that the first On Yer Bike event after the pandemic has helped to raise money for such an important local cause. Young Bristol continues to make a significant difference to the lives of young people across the city, and we’re extremely proud to support its fantastic work.”

Computershare has also raised a further £408.86 for the charity from sales of honey produced from its on-site beehives this year.

Thank you Computershare for raising vital funds for young people in Bristol!
