Team story

[p]A group of 50 riders will [b]cycle across Scotland[/b] from the Kyle of Tongue in the far north, back to Aberdeen. The total distance is [b]270 miles[/b] to be covered over 3 days (September 3rd to 5th 2021). Why? To raise money for 3 awesome UK charities, [b][u]so please give generously[/u][/b]. [/p][p][b]Every £ you donate will be matched 1:1 by bp. [/b][/p][p]The [b]amazing Charities [/b]we have chosen to support this year are:[/p][p][b]Grampian Flyers Wheelchair Basket Ball Team [/b][/p][p]The Grampian Flyers Basketball Club is the premier basketball club in the North East of Scotland. They work closely with local league clubs, local authority partners and our national governing body, Basketball Scotland, to ensure both participation in physical activity to improve health inequalities and develop talented youngsters to fulfil their potential and reach international standard. Grampian Flyers Wheelchair Basketball run training sessions and organise games for youth teams (age 8-14) and for senior teams. They compete with other wheelchair basketball clubs throughout the country. A C2C donation would be used to purchase a van for transporting their wheelchairs to games. This would be the largest boost to the team in its history. It would be hugely beneficial and allow support participation for more players to take part in games and competitions. [/p][p][b]Grampian Child Bereavement Network (Archie)[/b][/p][p]The Grampian Child Bereavement service, supported by the ARCHIE Foundation, provides vital support for children who have lost a loved one and are also proud to support babies, parents and staff at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital’s Neonatal Unit. The C2C funding would cover the running costs for the Grampian Bereavement Network for one year which is largely staffed by volunteers. One of the coast to coast participants wife works for Aberdeenshire Council as a Kinship Care Social Worker. She had a very heart-wrenching experience recently when a single mother died of a heart attack suddenly in her sleep. Her 5-year old son was asleep next to her at the time. He was found by the Grandparents the next morning, following a facetime conversation with him. At the same time as dealing with the loss of their daughter the Grandparents have taken up care of their Grandson and are trying to help him come to terms with what has happened. The Grampian Child Bereavement Network have been working to try and help him make sense of what happened and the change in his life. The Grandparents say, “Since our daughters passing it has been the biggest challenge for us to comprehend what has happened, but having our grandson in our care has helped us tremendously. We appreciate the support and time our grandson’s bereavement worker Jane has given to him. She has provided him with a safe space to express his feelings and built a trusting relationship with him. It makes us feel reassured that we are doing what is best for our grandson during a terrible time in his life."[/p][p][b]Friends of Wood Recyclability (FoWR)[/b][/p][p]Wood RecyclAbility is a social enterprise that, for over 20 years, has been providing an inclusive environment for adults with additional support needs (trainees) based out of Pitmedden. There are currently 35 trainees who rely on the organisation to provide work experience, development and a real purpose. They develop practical and social skills through reuse and upcycling of waste materials – primarily wood but they also trialing expansion of activities into the recycling of rigid plastic which would otherwise go to landfill. FoWR raise funds for equipment and projects at Wood RecyclAbility, to support its continued operation, improve the facilities and expand the training opportunities. The Wood Chipper is a vital piece of equipment at Wood RecyclAbility. Any wood that is unable to be upcycled is transformed into wood chips and turned into fibreboard for the construction industry. And plastic can also be chipped, increasing the density for more eco-friendly transportation. The current chipper is failing, and without it, Wood RecyclAbility will not be viable. £30,000 would allow them to overhaul their primary wood chipper and house it in a multi-purpose shed. An upgraded chipper would transform the capability, increasing capacity and revenues and enable long-term financial sustainability for Wood RecyclAbility. The environmental impact of Wood RecyclAbility is substantial, having saved over 30,000 tonnes of waste wood from landfill, mostly originating from the Oil Industry.
