Raising money for children's charities
Last year, with the relentless effort from riders, we raised a staggering £71,173 for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Children's radiotherapy ward.
This year, the money raised by the SACA Charity Bike Ride 2016 will be used to fund a ‘home from home’ in association with Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for families of children and young adults receiving cancer treatment.
Every year a children's charity is selected as the ride's beneficiary. Over the last 31 years, the ride has raised in excess of £450,000 in aid of different children's charity groups. Previous beneficiaries include Barnardo's, NSPCC, Capital FM's Help a London Child Appeal. Ealing Hospital's Playground in the Sky Appeal. Contact a Family, dEBra, Down syndrome Research Foundation, Whizz Kidz , Richard House , SCOPE, Children with Leukemia, WellChild, Rainbow Trust and Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
