Staff from Alliance Homes took part in an ambitious cycle ride from Portishead to Paris to raise vital funds to support local people in urgent need.
11 cyclists and two support staff completed the ride in July, with the aim of raising £5,000 for the Alliance Homes Charitable Fund. The fund aims to provide ‘a small amount when it counts’ with up to £75 worth of goods. For those in real need, support is often as simple as providing basic equipment such as a kettle, a chair, a bed or a blanket but it can make a huge difference to someone’s life.
Mike Nicholls from Alliance Homes said, “The fund means that our employees can give those in urgent need essential goods and equipment, without which many people in the local community would find themselves in a much harder position.”
£2,000 was raised from Alliances Homes’ corporate sponsors Shaw Consulting, Northgate Public Services and Total Mobile.
