1st April to 30th April 2017
For the very first Bicycle Island Challenge we raised £575 for Carers IW to buy cameras. 228 journeys were logged, with a total distance of 1257km. Considering this was the first challenge that’s a great result.
Carers IW is based at the Riverside in Newport and provides information, support and advocacy to adults who look after another adult.
Carers IW are raising money to buy cameras so that they can run a camera group for carers who have difficulty leaving their home and feel isolated because of this. Carers will be able to borrow cameras and participate in ongoing challenges. There will be opportunities to learn, enjoy peer support, and for carers to include their cared-for person in activities.
Thank you to the WightAID Foundation and the Isle of Wight Council for sponsoring the first Bicycle Island challenge.
