BBC Children in Need

We fund people, projects and charities to change young lives in the UK

Charity Registration No. 802052 (England, Wales) SC039557 (Scotland)


Between 7th - 11th September 2018 GEFCO, with the support of both their customers and suppliers, are saddling up to take on an amazing adventure to cycle 300 miles from Coventry to Paris in aid of Children in Need.

GEFCO UK's Coventry to Paris Cycle Challenge is one of the great cycle experiences in Europe. Passing through the beautiful English villages, we cross the Channel and continue through rural France before reaching Paris and ending the challenge under the Eiffel Tower!

Each member of our team will be engaged in a training programme with experts who know exactly what this challenge involves. This will ensure that our team has all of the knowledge and equipment to successfully complete this journey.

All of the money raised and donated to the riders participating will go towards Children in Need. But why did GEFCO UK choose to support Children in Need this year?

Children in Need currently supports around 2,500 projects in the UK who work with charities who help disadvantaged children and young people to make their lives that little bit better.

If you would like to support us whilst we embark on this fantastic  quest,  please donate today.
