Beginning at 12 noon on Wednesday the 30th of November a bold band of cyclists from our Taunton and Barnstaple offices will be seeing how far we can cycle in 24 hours to raise money for the NSPCC.
The challengers will be taking it in turns to ride on stationary cycles in their respective boardrooms with the aim of racking up as many miles as possible in 24 hours.
We will pedal through the afternoon, the evening and all through the night, taking it in turns to cycle as quickly as possible to build as many miles as we can, finally finishing at 12 noon on Thursday the 1st of December.
We will be doing this to raise money for the NSPCC.
The NSPCC not only help children who have been abused, they seek to protect those at risk of abuse and help prevent abuse from happening in the first place. We have a specialist abuse team who deal with claims in relation to abuse including historical claims in relation to childhood sexual abuse, but by the time we become involved the damage has already been done and it is this latter aim of the NSPCC that we feel very passionately about.
As John Cleese, NSPCC supporter says,
"Our responsibility is not just to children, but to all children. Knowing that there's something we can do to prevent child abuse, how will we explain that we had the chance to change the future - and didn't?"
We therefore want to raise as much money as possible to support the NSPCC's fantastic work including their "Speak Out Stay Safe" programme which aims to ensure that a generation of children have the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. The programme includes special assemblies and workshops in schools to educate children to understand and recognise abuse, know how to protect themselves and how to get help such as the NSPCC's Childline.
