BAPS Charities raises funds for Barnardo’s with 30-Mile Challenge
Over 100 enthusiastic cyclists took the BAPS Charities 30-Mile Cycle Challenge on Sunday 15 August 2010 to raise money for Barnardo’s and various other local charities. Tagged ‘Get on Your Bike’, the event ran across
The event was a continuation of the support BAPS Charities has provided to Barnardo’s over the year. Earlier, in April, they raised £25,000 for Barnardo’s when 3,500 runners and walkers from around the country took the BAPS Charities 10k Challenge. The money raised will go towards helping disadvantaged children with learning disabilities and other worthy causes.
The Cycle Challenge was open to everyone over the age of 14, with a £20 registration fee covering both bike and helmet hire as well.

Barnardo’s Director of Fundraising, Liz Cox, said: “Barnardo’s is delighted and proud to be working with BAPS Charities once again and their support is invaluable in helping the charity continue its work with children, young people and their families through its projects in communities across the UK.”
