Here at JLU we are passionate about supporting others and raising money for Charity.
Our chosen charity for 2020 is Cyclists Fighting Cancer, a UK wide charity which provides a unique and highly effective way of helping kids with cancer through activity and exercise.
As Jackson Lee are a supplier of cycle insurance to the UK Broker market, we thought that Cyclists Fighting Cancer would be a great fit for our charitable activity this year.
About Cyclists Fighting Cancer
Cyclists Fighting Cancer (CFC) is a registered charity founded in 2005 which gives new bikes, tandems and specially adapted trikes to children and young people who have been affected by cancer. The effects of the disease and associated treatment regimes in children are numerous; amputations, balance issues, physical weakness, coordination difficulties and lack of self-esteem are just a few of the most common side effects seen in many patients.
Exercise has been shown in numerous adult studies to be the single most effective way of improving both physical and mental wellness for people surviving cancer and CFC encourage cycling as the best form of exercise based rehabilitation especially for children because it provides all these benefits in a low impact, fun, sociable and exciting way.
CFC provided 1,000 bikes/trikes to children in 2019 bringing the total since the charity began in 2005 to 6,000.
Jackson Lee’s aim is to help CFC by donating £1 from every cycle insurance policy sold to the charity to help give more new bikes bikes/trikes to children who can really benefit from them. Jackson Lee staff will also be joining Team CFC and doing 20 brilliant things www.20in20.org.uk to help raise even more money.
#20in20 is simple, just do 20 brilliant things in 2020, get sponsored, raise money and help to support more children living with and beyond cancer. Walk, run, bike, swim, in fact do anything that you’d like to do! It doesn’t have to be sporty, it could be 20 litter picks, bake 20 cakes or plant 20 trees the possibilities are endless!
