WE’RE RAISING MONEY FOR AN AMAZING CHARITY.
On Saturday the 14th of October 2017, team Our IT Department will be hitting the bike trail and taking on the 2017 PIP Mountain Bike Challenge. This fund raising event is taking place to raise money for the amazing London-based charity PIP (Pursuing Independent Paths).
Thanks to your amazing support, we managed to raise an incredible £2,960.00 for PIP by participating in last years mountain bike challenge. We’re determined to smash this total in 2017, but this can only be achieved with your continued help and support!
WHAT IS THE PIP MOUNTAIN BIKE CHALLENGE?
The mountain bike challenge is a 20-mile long bike ride that takes place across the beautiful surroundings of Chiltern Valley, Henley-Upon-Thames. This annual event sees riders coming together to raise awareness and money for the charity PIP. The testing but enjoyable route is designed to be completed in approx. 3.5 hours, but thankfully, there is no pressure on us to finish within this time!
Last year, 12 members of team Our IT Department did us proud by completing the track as well as raising a substantial sum of money for PIP. We’d like to say a sincere thank you to everyone that donated because it is YOUR generosity that allows PIP to continue doing their amazing work.
The PIP mountain bike challenge is PIPs biggest fundraising event. PIP is reliant upon donations and events such as these to continue their vital and unique work in the community, so we’d really appreciate ANY sized donation you can afford.
SOME PICTURES OF THE TEAM THAT TOOK PART IN LAST YEARS CHALLENGE.
PIP is a registered charity that is dedicated to supporting adults with learning disabilities. Their vital work helps adults with Down’s syndrome, Autism and other learning disabilities to live as independently as possible. The money raised during the Mountain Bike Challenge goes towards teaching these people how to cook healthy meals for themselves, how to budget and manage money, and growing their confidence so they can travel independently and use computers and other technology efficiently.
