The Quilter Cycle Team raises over £8,500 for local charities

Date: 27 June 2022

On the weekend of 18/16 June 2022, over 40 Quilter colleagues hit the road to raise vital funds for The Quilter Foundation. Not only did the team collectively cycle a huge 6,035km, beating the total distance originally pledged, they also raised over £8,500 for local charities.

The team covered distances across the UK, and even in Vancouver, Canada. Whilst some rode in teams and with their families, others took to the road solo over the sunny weekend.

How the funds raised will help

The funds raised will go towards The Quilter Foundation’s Local Community Fund which gives Quilter colleagues the opportunity to nominate charities close to their hearts to receive funding.  The Local Community Fund provides one-off grants to local charities that need our support now more than ever.

One of the charities we funded last quarter was The Movin’ on Project who said:

“We would like to thank The Quilter Foundation and the kind member of staff who nominated our charity for so generously supporting The Movin’ on Project through the Local Community Fund. The donation means that we will be able to support more young people from our community who are facing mental health struggles and want confidential professional counselling and more mental health support.”

Mark Satchel, the Quilter CFO, said:

“I was once again most grateful for the support to this year’s Quilter Foundation Cycle Challenge – not just from those that participated, but also those that so generously supported the raising of funds for local community charities. The camaraderie over the weekend was brilliant once again, and colleagues from all parts of Quilter participated in the challenge. Many thanks also to the small team of organisers – Linzi Hoskins, Adrian Fisher, Harvey Rathore and Lucy Driver – you were all super, as usual.

A huge well done and thank you to all our riders for your amazing efforts and dedication!”
