Our challenge is to ride approx. 4000 miles around the coastline of the UK on 30+ year old 125cc motorbikes that have been converted to Café Racers, this will take about 2 weeks to complete, to add to the challenge we will be camping on the trip as well.  We will have a support vehicle carrying spares, camping gear etc.  The reason for the trip is to raise money for two charities, The Stroke Association and SANDs (Stillborn and Neo-Natal Death charity) monies raised will be split between the charities.

We recently had a meeting with Mark Knopfler and John Illsley from Dire Straits at The East End Arms near Lymington, we had a great chat with them about the bikes and the ride and they gave us some good advice as well as signing some T-shirts for us that we hope to auction off to raise funds.  The connection with Dire Straits came about because we found out that before they were called Dire Straits, they did a gig as ‘The Café Racers’.

BounceBack Scheme Spring Update

bounceback_scheme_2017In an update to our previous news item relating to our work with the Bounce Back Foundation, an organisation dedicated to providing skills training, qualifications and employment for ex-offenders, we have shown below an extract from the CEO of Bounce Back with some fantastic feedback on the support our teams have provided. This clearly demonstrates our on-going commitment to this scheme and we continue to work with them and support their long term objectives.

 

“I have also attached a proposal (click here) that we did for Berkeley Homes for a new training centre, in partnership with Mums the Chef, a womens initiative.  This not only shows more detail about our progress, but also we couldn’t have done without the help of Howard King from JM Scully.  Howard brought in CGL architects who provided pro bono support to draw the plans and provide visuals.  Both CGL and JM Scully gave us daily input as we prepared for this presentation.  We await response now from Tower Hamlets, but our relationship with J M Scully is now completely embedded in our Social Enterprise as a regular and hugely supportive employer of our services and our participants, a success that would not have occurred without the support of WBA.”
