Strength and stamina will be tested when employees from Bright Horizons Family Solutions take part in a sponsored cycle challenge to help raise funds for their registered charity, The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, which supports families and children in crisis, living in temporary accommodation or fleeing from domestic violence.
The challenge will see seven Bright Horizons employees starting their 750 mile journey at the nursery group’s most northern nursery in Aberdeen on 6th May, finishing at The Grand Hotel in Brighton on 19th May. During the challenge the group will be visiting 16 nurseries and the company’s Head Office Rushden.
The cyclists, with the support of the company’s nurseries, support offices, clients and suppliers, hope to raise over £50,000 for the Foundation. The proceeds will be used to build on the Foundations’ 36 Bright Spaces - warm, safe, enriching spaces created by the Foundation to help families and children in need.
Jeremy Clark, Development Director at Bright Horizons, and one of the seven intrepid cyclists, said, “I’m delighted we have managed to transform this idea in to a reality and I’m looking forward to getting started. The support we have had from staff, families, clients and suppliers of Bright Horizons has been incredible thus far and I’m sure it will continue. We have set ourselves an ambitious target of £50,000, which would give a massive boost to our Foundation and support the amazing work they do.”
Tracy Wilkes-Green, Foundation Manager for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, said, “I am so proud of everyone within the company. From the get-go everyone has been incredibly supportive to our cyclists and it’s another example of the fantastic enthusiasm and support throughout Bright Horizons a for our Foundation.”
