Once again, we offer our huge thanks to each and every client, who chose to take on one (or more!) of our CSR team building challenges last year. You helped us achieve a record breaking year in O3e history, donating over £170k worth of equipment and money to charities and very worthy causes. This is our shared legacy with you – we couldn’t do it without you.
387 Bikes were built by YOU last year
These bikes are now in their new homes, supporting a wide range of people. From rehabilitation after cancer, to offering exercise and recreation to disadvantaged children, to being part of social inclusion projects to reduce loneliness and anti-social behaviour
We were thrilled to start working with The Manchester Children’s Hospital this year, where we were able to donate an incredible 33 bikes to the children they support, many of whom are facing chronic illnesses and long-term rehabilitation programmes. READ MORE
And 58 Sports Wheelchairs!
Sports Wheelchair Challenges, donated an impressive 58 wheelchairs to grassroots disability sports clubs, allowing children and adults to access wheelchair basketball, hockey and tennis. READ MORE about these grassroots clubs and the difference these wheelchairs are making.
And 26 VERY Funky Beds!!
These funky beds have proved very popular with both our clients and the children receiving them. They have found homes with children in foster care and with children dealing with bereavement. READ MORE about how these fab beds are making a positive impact.
Not forgetting our 4 Special Trikes!
Look at that smile! The 4 trikes built, now have homes with some very special children as well as at Disability playgroups, giving more kiddies to chance to learn to ride, and have FUN!
And an impressive cash donation of £4,100
Cash donations give charities flexibility, and allow us to support even more charities, where perhaps bikes or wheelchairs are unsuitable. Cash donations are made possible through our events such as The Great Philanthropic Challenge – think Crystal Maze, where gold tickets = cash for charity!
And what about the O3e Team?
We’ve supported many charities this year, which has seen us taking our bike and wheelchair simulators along to many charity events, including;
Access Sport’s Summer Series 2017 School Games – a Sport’s Day for special schools, held at the Olympic Park, and the launch event of the Prince’s Trust’s Palace to Palace Bike Ride – we even took part in the ride, raising over £500 for the charity.
We’re looking forward to working with you again in 2018, supporting your team and your community
