Action For Children
Action for Children works in local communities to protect and support the young and vulnerable, as they grow up. We exist to make their lives better: now, tomorrow and every day. We make growing up safer. We believe in taking action early to fix problems before a child is overwhelmed by them. We make things happen quickly and with understanding. We help children at different stages of their lives. We care about each child and every family. We treat everyone as an individual and give people the support they really need. We never give up. We run over 650 services, from children’s centres to intensive family support, from fostering and adoption to respite care for the disabled. We have over 7,000 staff and 2,000 volunteers. In the past year we helped more children and their families across the UK than any other charity. Today, we could easily double that number to meet demand. Let’s all take more action for children.
Access Sport CIO
Founded in 2004, Access Sport is a dynamic charity whose mission is to give children from the UK’s most disadvantaged communities access to a wide range of quality sport. We empower the inspirational volunteers who run local sports clubs with financial support, expert advice and networking. Our club development programmes, kick-started by Sports Jam festival days, bring lasting change to the areas that benefit most from sport’s unique power to transform lives through tackling health, crime, educational attainment and social mobility issues.

Nic Phipps,

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting our page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.


bikewithjake2012 is a team of 3; Jake (aged 11 years), Nic & Philip.  

On 1st June 2012 we will be setting out on our bikes our

Olympic Venue Cycle Challenge

cycling from Hampden Park, Glasgow and heading to The Olympic Park, London via all the Olympic Venues for London 2012.  

We will be raising money for two charities Action for Children and Access Sport helping them to support vulnerable children in a local & proactive way.

Just like the charities we support, we believe in the possibilities and so we are committing our time and energies to a long-distance cycle ride to visit the venues of the Olympic Games.  The Olympics embody the theme of possibility and so it seems fitting to make this ride.

In 2010 we cycled from Land's End to Dover taking all our kit and staying as close to the coast as possible. We raised just under £2000, we can do much better than that with your help.
