Recently we revealed that we would be supporting Redthread as our 2018 charity of the year but now our team is really getting things going.
As part of our announcement, we revealed that we would be supporting youth work charity Redthread in two ways: through pro-bono work to support the development of the organisation and fundraising, and both are now getting underway with our fundraising efforts leading the charge.
Miramar have committed to raising money for Redthread by taking part in the Prudential Ride 100, a testing route made famous by the world’s best cyclists at the London 2012 Olympics. David Bell, Richard Pitts and Phil Channon will be representing both Miramar and the charity at this famous event.
Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 starts in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route on closed roads through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside.
Our three intrepid participants are raising money to benefit Redthread. They are looking to smash the Miramar company target of £2,250.
Of course, this is only the beginning for both organisations with each considering how else they can continue to collaborate to ensure maximum impact.
On the 23rd of this month Miramar Global Directors, Andrew Stoneham Knott and Ross Bailey, along with Head of Commercial Delivery, David Bell and Miramar Talent MD, David Winch, will meet with Redthread CEO John Poyton to discuss how Miramar can be of benefit to Redthread. Miramar are keen to understand further how Redthread work and how they can spread the message and benefits that Redthread provide.
To find out more about the partnership read our announcement. We look forward to bringing you more news as it happens.
