CatZero Cycle Challenge 2016
Why we need your help
The CatZero Cycle Challenge 2016
CatZero is an innovative youth development charity in Hull, transforming the lives of young people by helping them into education, training or employment.
Following the successful inaugural event in 2015, the CCC2016 will be held on 10th to 12th June 2016. This challenge will again follow the route of the Trans Pennine Trail from Albert Dock Liverpool to Hull Marina.
The aim of this sponsored event is for each cyclist to raise over £500 each towards young people’s programmes. Unlike most other long-distance cycle routes in the UK, the Trail is mostly off- road along canals, riversides and dis-used railway lines. It passes through many urban areas but also beautiful countryside, taking in picturesque villages, castles and abbeys along the way. Approximately 20 cyclists will set off on Friday lunchtime from Albert Dock, Liverpool. The Friday night will be spent in Stockport after a 50 mile cycle. Day 2 will take on the Pennines finishing in Doncaster after 70 miles. The Sunday will be the final 50 miles cycle back to Hull for a celebration event and hog roast.
Please support this year’s cycle challenge as generously as possible as we can assure you, all monies raised will be directed into the training and mentoring to transform the lives of young people in need..
CatZero is a Hull based charity which works with young people aged 18 to 24 who are not in education, employment or training (NEETS).They are given the opportunity over a 10 week programme to gain practical qualifications, such as manual handling and food hygiene certificates, to learn interview techniques, to undertake health education and to try dinghy sailing and kayaking. The programmes CatZero offer are a balance between challenge and support. CatZero challenges people through personal action plans, challenging activities and personal goal setting which enables them to understand where they currently are, plan where they would like to be and then support them, through a process of positive activities and training, to put steps in place to achieve their own goals and improve their lives. There is also the chance at the end of the course to undertake a week long sailing voyage on the CatZero 72 foot round the world racing yacht. The programme is very successful and over 75% of candidates completing the course go on into employment or training.
