Throughout the month of May, staff from across the Pound Gates Group (Pound Gates, Sevatas and Contior) are taking part in The Cycling Challenge for Soma Leo.

The Challenge will raise funds for The Soma Leo Foundation, our charity that provides primary aged education to 175 children in the deprived area of Nyiera, Kenya. Specifically, funds raised will go towards new laptops, computer and internet connectivity, which will help their online learning and connection to the wider world.

It is also a wonderful opportunity to bring all of our staff back together, following several years of hybrid and home working. Our teams will work together for a common goal, while having fun and (possibly) getting a little fitter in the process.

The Challenge will take place in and around our head office in Ipswich and our inspection sites offices around the UK..

Participants are free to engage with the Challenge in the way that they find most enjoyable. There will be static bikes at our offices, spin classes at a local gym and organised group rides. Although there is a focus on bringing our staff together, there is also the option for solo rides and cycling at home or at the gym. Everyone taking part has committed to cycle at least 50 miles over the month.
