A group of intrepid cyclists set off to pedal for Wilderness on Saturday 15th November. The group charted a circular route just shy of fifty miles on a damp Saturday, starting and ending at the Wilderness Foundation’s UK offices in Chatham Green, Essex.
The cyclists comprised a mixed team of Wilderness Foundation staff and supporters who all gave up their free time to ride around the local villages in a bid to raise awareness of the work of the charity, while enjoying a a healthy and fun activity. The group also hope to raise around £300 in support of the core work of the charity.
New staff member Clive Emmett who has recently joined the charity said:
“I have been so impressed by the work of the Wilderness Foundation UK and really wanted to do something to help other people learn about this great charity too. I was amazed when I joined just how much this small, dedicated team achieve each year, delivering a wonderful range of nature-based interventions for young people. I hope that our sponsored cycle ride brings in some extra funding to support the core work of the charity, which really makes a difference here in Essex, but also as far away as the Highlands of Scotland. If you can support them then please do!”
