Help support this cause!

I am riding 300 miles this July in the Bristol to Bordeaux Cycle Challenge to raise money for Props! As most of you know i am not a cyclist but this is a great charity and i’m always up for a Challenge. Training has been tough but i have recently done 65 miles which is my longest ride ever, and its now 2 to 3 rides a week to get used to sitting on a really comfy saddle!!

Every single penny donated goes towards Props – a small charity with big ambitions of breaking down barriers and creating work opportunities for adults who have learning disabilities.

The money raised directly helps create opportunities for Trainees like Farwa and Jamie to pursue their passions.

Farwa is now cooking regularly in the Props enterprise kitchen, feeling huge pride that her bakes are now being sold on the high street!

Jamie has flourished working in our Vassall Cafe and is now confidently serving customers and taking charge of cooking entire recipes without support!

Thank you so much for your very kind support.

gift aid

Gift Aid is a remarkable initiative for those in the UK, enabling charities to reclaim the tax on your donation. By selecting the Gift Aid option, for every £10 you donate, it could be worth £12.50, at absolutely no extra cost to you! So, if you're a UK taxpayer, the next time you're at the checkout, consider ticking the Gift Aid box. Not only will you be contributing to a noble cause, but you'll also amplify the impact of your generosity. Remember, in order to Gift Aid your donation, you should be paying enough in income tax and/or capital gains tax each year to cover the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations. It's essential to keep charities updated if there are changes in your tax status, name, or address. By embracing Gift Aid, you’re empowering charitable organizations to do even more remarkable work. Let’s make every penny count!
