    Story

    Supporting our local community has been an essential part of the Penrose Group culture. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has proven that helping the wider community has equal importance. So, this year, the Penrose Group have partnered with a local charity, Dramatize and the national charity, MS-UK, to help them fund the fantastic work they do.

    Dramatize.

    Dramatize , based in Ashford, Surrey, a few minutes’ walk from Penrose Groups HQ, is a charity that provides a range of theatrical provisions to help further the personal development of adults with learning disabilities. Their services act as a leisure activity and a platform for individuals to socialise with other peers and learn valuable life skills inspiring independence for a lifetime of creativity. Dramatize work with different ability levels, providing care and support to ensure that their services are accessible to all. Dramatize encourages their students to believe in themselves, to develop and achieve the unexpected. Every penny donated will help Dramatize to build a better future for their students. This is their tenth year supporting adults with learning disabilities, and we want to support them to continue their hard for the next ten years and beyond.

    If you would like to find out more, please visit Dramatize .

    MS-UK

    MS-UK is a national charity that provides various services to enable people affected by Multiple Sclerosis to access the support and information they need to make informed decisions about their lives. As a wholly independent charity, they rely on our amazing fundraisers to help us to continue being here for those that need us most.

    Every single penny donated really will make a difference to the work MS-UK do. For example, £50 could pay for a telephone counselling session, £200 is the cost of 10 complimentary subscriptions to their New Pathways magazine for those who cannot afford it. £2,520 would help us support people through our national MS-UK helpline and webchat for a whole week.

    Please click MS-UK to find out more about their work.

    The Challenge.

    Jas, from Penrose’s Sales & Marketing team, will be cycling 321 miles over three Sportives and one off-road mountain bike ride aiming to raise much-needed funds for the two charities helping them continue their fantastic work and support they provide.

    The Five-cycle rides are:

    May 23rd, 2021 – 100-mile (Climbing 1560 metres), Rutland Border Epique.

    June 27th, 2021 – 75-mile (Climbing 684 metres), The Giant Sportive at Doddington Hall

    July 17th, 2021 – 47 -mile (Climbing 1200 metres), The Surrey Hills Epic Off-Road Challenge

    Sept 26th, 2021 – 100-mile Jet Ride

    Oct 16th, 2001 90-mile - The Lincoln Grand Prix Sportive

    Your support.

    We know that COVID-19 has impacted us all. This probably is not the best time to ask for a donation, but Dramatize, and MS-UK rely on donations to provide their outstanding support, empowering people to live a happier life with respect, care and compassion.

    Your generous donations will be split equally between Dramatize and MS-U K

      Having neglected my mountain bike since I started my road bike challenge. I took my mountain bike away with me to the Derbyshire Dales. I loved it, so wet and windy, and my inner child came out to play. So many hills, muddy puddles, aching muscles, and so many laughs and great food with great friends. Added another 105 miles over the weekend.

      Saturday's Lincoln National Championship Sportive was the final event in my charity challenge. I have cycled 435-miles over five sportives, plus another 924-miles cycled in training sessions. I've shed tears, spilt blood cycling the Surrey Hills Epic, & buckets of sweat has excreted from my body. I have fallen off my bike and turbo trainer too many times to mention. A huge thank you goes out the those who have donated or said they would donate.

      One last sweaty turbo training session, before my last Sportive on Saturday. I've opted to cycle the 90-mile route of Lincoln GP Sportive. I'm not looking forward to cycling up the cobbled Michealgate to the finish line.
