This July a team of Ramsdens’ cyclists will once again be taking on the Tour de Ramsdens, which is now in its third year, in aid of Yorkshire Children’s Centre.

Yorkshire Children’s Centre, which was set up by Brian Jackson over 40 years ago, is dedicated to improving the lives of residents in Kirklees, offering their support to children, young people, adults, families and the elderly. The charity has been fundamental in helping the local community throughout the pandemic, from offering befriending and victim support services to helping people get back to work.

The cyclists will be travelling 100 miles across Ramsdens’ 14 offices, which are situated across Yorkshire, on Thursday 8th July, starting at the York office in the morning and finishing at the Ramsden Street office in Huddersfield later that evening. There will also be a number of cyclists who will be completing the challenge virtually on static bikes.

Jonathan Cornes, Director of Risk & Compliance and organiser of the Tour de Ramsdens commented: “Although it’s a tough physical and mental challenge to get everyone to the finish line, we have been looking forward to getting on the road again after last year’s pandemic postponement, and it’s so good to be able to do something for such a good cause. The introduction of the static bike riders adds a great new dimension and challenge to the event, and makes it even more inclusive. We can’t wait to get started!”

In its previous years the Tour de Ramsdens has raised over £2,500 for charity. Please help us to achieve our goal once again by donating through our Just Giving page.
