Last week E G Carter & Co Ltd put on their cycling gear and set themselves a target, to cycle 500 miles in a week on a static bike. This was all in aid of local Gloucester Charity, Gloucestershire Nightstop. This local charity provides a safety net for young homeless people aged 16-18, providing time and space to find more settled options.
was chosen because on average young people travel approximately five miles to
access a Nightstop Host. Gloucestershire Nightstop provides around 1200 bed
nights a year so the annual travel total of their young homeless people is
around 6000 miles. Sadly 6000 miles in a week would have been unachievable,
however E G Carter wanted to cycle a weeks’ worth of miles totalling up to 500
In order to
get the ball rolling E G Carter & Co Ltd needed some bikes. Anytime Fitness
gym in Stroud wanted to help and agreed to support Gloucestershire Nightstop
week by donating their top of the range static spin bikes for the week.
Like any sport, the cycling quickly became competitive, with one employee setting the bar very high, cycling 7.7 miles in 15 minutes. Due to the positive competitiveness and the sheer hard work of everyone who took part, E G Carter & Co Ltd managed to cycle 797 miles and thanks to our friends at Anytime Fitness Gym, E G Carter managed to round up the figure to 800 miles.
the week clients, friends, family and other colleagues all supported the
charity by donating money; the rising total is currently £672.14.
