To celebrate the significant milestone of 70 years since Harold John Ridge opened our first office in Oxford back in 1946, we launched a 12 month charity challenge in January to raise £70,000 for both local and national charities.
With 500 employees across 10 offices, the Ridge Challenge70 campaign aims to inspire and encourage our team to raise money for charities chosen by our staff.
Some of the events we have completed so far throughout this year are:
- 100 mile bike ride in 24 hours
- Cycle Sportive 2016
- Three Peaks Challenge
- Pier to Pier swim – Bournemouth
- John O’Groats to Lands End cycle ride
- It’s a knockout!
- Reading Half Marathon
We are delighted to announce that we have now raised £78,000 for charity*, therefore exceeding our target! We would like to thanks all of those who have participated in events, friends and family for their support, as well as everyone who has donated to our chosen charities – a few of which we have named below!
