You might remember the Springfield Financial Services charity cycling event earlier this year, in which Simon Wilson of Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling stormed to victory, setting a new course record with an impressive 17 minutes and 29 seconds.
Springfield Financial Racing Team has donated £500 to World Bicycle Relief from the funds raised during this charity cycling event. This charity specialises in large-scale, comprehensive bicycle distribution programs to aid poverty relief in developing countries worldwide.
World Bicycle Relief
World Bicycle Relief works across the globe. The charity helps people in rural communities by improving access to education, markets, health facilities and vital services. They do this by providing a specifically designed bicycle, The Buffalo.
In our 21st-century modern societies, cycling is a hobby many enjoy; in fact, it’s one we here at Springfield Financial services share. Many modern bicycles are designed to be lightweight, complex, and designed for recreational activities such as racing or cross-country. However, in less advantageous communities, the bike serves as a reliable method of transportation; as such, The Buffalo Bicycle isn’t your typical bike. Like its namesake animal, The Buffalo is strong and powerful, able to travel long distances of rugged terrain with heavy cargo.
Our voluntary and charitable works
At Springfield Financial, we believe donating money and time to charitable causes is important. We frequently engage in staff fundraising, charity events, corporate donations and sponsorship. If you know of a local or global cause that you think deserves our attention. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. We’re always looking for ways to help make a difference in this vast and diverse world.
