bptw staff participate in Ride London for charity the 999 Club

Posted: 04.08.2017

As part of our ‘giving something back' initiative, last weekend two members of staff took part in the Prudential Ride London-Surrey in aid of local homelessness Charity the 999 Club, Deptford.

A big well done to Architect Alex Gibbons and Architectural Assistant William O'Brien who joined 30,000 cyclists, including bptw's Richard Knight, to tackle the grueling 100 miles from Stratford to Surrey and back, completing the race in under 6 hours.  Their amazing effort, which was part funded by the practice, raised over £1,500 for the charity.

The 999 Club, Deptford is a small local charity providing advice, advocacy, shelter, healthcare and activities for homeless people in Lewisham & South London. They help to equip people who are homeless with the ability and confidence to learn new skills, find work, and reconnect with family and friends.  You can find out more about the great work they do at: https://www.999club.org/about-us/

The 999 club is one of 3 local charities we have committed to support with fundraising, volunteering, and donations throughout 2017 and 2018 as part of our ‘giving something back' initiative,  and we would like to say a big thank you to Alex and William for their incredible effort in making this happen.
