Come to our Festive Fundraiser!

On Tuesday 11th December 2018 we’re throwing a Festive Fundraiser!

We’re taking this opportunity to thank our volunteers, our supporters, our corporate (and not-so-corporate) partners, TFL’s Cycling Grants London Programme, and of course, all the community members who’ve believed in us, championed us and continue to support our work

Entrance is FREE ALL NIGHT, there’ll be a Christmas meal on a ‘pay-what-you-can’ basis, music will be supplied from a stellar line up of DJ’s and there’ll also be a number of handcrafted, cycle-related gifts for sale in addition to our volunteer-designed Christmas Card Boxsets

And if this isn’t enough to entice you….we have a raffle with OVER £700 worth of prizes to be shared amongst the lucky winners

Our journey to date has been incredible and when you consider that there’s no demand nor expectation for payment for much of the work we do, the fact that we’re still here – and growing – is a reflection of the wonderous community spirit we’re lucky to be a part of

Stour Space is an 8000sq ft venue but we’re expecting a huge turnout so please arrive early if you wish to dine with us, and please, wear a pair of shoes you can dance in…the Funktion One sound system will probably be put through it’s paces!

Many thanks to Stour Space and Camden Town Brewery for supporting us!!

Many thanks to TFL’s Cycling Grants London programme, administered by Groundwork London who are supporting Pro Bike Service C.I.C. through their three-year grant award scheme.   Of huge benefit (in addition to the finance) has been the training courses we’ve received – highly recommended!
