Cobra Sport staff took to their bikes last weekend to complete a charity bike ride, the last in a series of events the we have completed for the 2023 Master Cutler's Challenge.
This year's challenge has the theme of inclusivity and diversity and is in aid of the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust. The trust is employing and upskilling local people whilst supporting local culture, creativity and wellbeing. It is committed to encouraging and supporting diversity and inclusivity, so Wentworth Woodhouse can truly be a place for everyone.
Met at the start line and waved off by the current Master Cutler Dame Julie Kenny, our team embarked on a memorable adventure that took us on a circular route from the historic Wentworth Woodhouse estate to Cobra Sport HQ in Sheffield and back. With a mix of abilities and many brushing the cobwebs off their equipment before the start, the team stuck together to complete the route in just over 5 hours.
The Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust is committed to raising significant sums to support its ambitious programme of development over the coming decade. Campaigns and fundraising are key areas to enable its expansion. The money raised is to be used towards a number of targeted programmes at Wentworth Woodhouse including educational projects, community engagement activities, wellbeing programmes and cultural experiences. This goal is to focus on groups who are often not presented with the same opportunities as others, including people with disabilities, low income households, the socially and economically disadvantaged and ethnic groups.
Thanks to the dedication of our staff and the generosity of our sponsors and donors, we raised a substantial amount for the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust charity this year.
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who supported our charity bike ride, whether through donations, sponsorship, or simply encouraging us on along the route - cheers!
