Le Tour D'Essex
This summer we transformed our annual team bike ride "Le Tour D'Essex" into a sponsored cycle, raising funds for a very worthy cause: Art2Print Studio. This community graphic design studio has been doing wonderful work creating opportunities for volunteers with experience with mental health issues. For the past number of the months, we have been mentoring Art2Print and it was our aim to support them further (given recent funding cuts) by raising £2000 to help them buy much needed software/computers for their studio.
So we took to our bikes and planned to cycle 50km around Essex for this cause. On the day however, we were particularly lucky with the weather and enjoyed the cycle so much we ended up doing a total of 72km- though we felt like we could have kept on going!
We want to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who kindly donated to our fundraiser and helped us not only hit our target - but surpass it! Every penny raised will make a huge difference for Art2Print!
