Can you raise vital funds to improve the life chances of Barnet’s most vulnerable children?
Here at Young Barnet we’ve been working hard to help grow local activities and opportunities for children and young people across the London Borough of Barnet.
We’ve created 500 half term activity packs for local, disadvantaged children
We’ve set up a new partnership between the Barnet Foodbank Hub and World Memon Organisation Charitable Foundation
We’re currently liaising with local organisations to ensure we distribute central government funding for Summer Holiday activities with food
…but we need your help! We desperately need donations from local people for disadvantaged local children to ensure they have opportunities for learning and fun, beyond family and formal education, leading to increased confidence, life skills and greater happiness.
Join Young Barnet Foundation’s Cycling Team for the 2021 London to Brighton Cycle Ride
Set yourself a challenge, join Team YBF, cycle from London to Brighton and raise vital funds to improve the life chances of Barnet’s most vulnerable children! Not for you? Send to a friend!
Starting in Clapham, you’ll head out of London and predominantly cycle along picturesque, quiet country lanes passing through Surrey and West Sussex taking on the famous thigh-busting challenge that is Ditchling Beacon – a mile long climb to the top of the South Downs where you will be rewarded with amazing views and a water break. With a picturesque buffet lunch stop at the halfway point, this 55 mile ride is a fantastic day out!
Date: 19th September 2021
Registration fee: £65
We are asking every rider to commit to raising at least £150
We can travel together as a team to the start point in Clapham
Young Barnet Foundation will provide you with a branded cycling top
We will also transport you and your bike back to Barnet from Brighton
More information about the event can be found at www.londonbrightoncycle.co.uk
If you would like to join our team, please contact Peter Williamson PeterW@youngbarnetfoundation.org.uk
Don’t like cycling? Some other ideas include committing to going for a walk/run/cycle every day for a month, travelling the equivalent length of Barnet (from the Battle of Barnet monument in the north to Cricklewood station in the south = 9 miles or 19,000 steps), completing the number of steps equivalent to the population of Barnet – 402,000 or perhaps a swimathon, danceathon, marathon, fitness class, sports tournament… even a catch-a-ball-athon!
