Caring Harrogate Company Supports Fundraiser

Local company Home Instead,  who deliver care and support in the comfort of your own home, were more than happy to support the recent charity bike ride organised by Ripon Rotary Club. The bike ride is an annual event to raise important funds for charities including Dementia Forward, Scleroderma Research, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Saint Michael's Hospice  plus other local charities in the area supported by Ripon Rotary Club. Unfortunately due to the pandemic the bike ride could not be held for 2 years.   

The route covers 62 miles in total, starting and finishing at Bishop Monkton Village Hall and the route includes the towns and villages around Helperby, Easingwold, Newton on Ouse and Ferensby.

The team at Home Instead got up bright and early on the morning of Saturday the 7th May, to set up the refreshment stop at Stillington Village Hall, multiple cups of fruit juice and bananas were laid out and at the ready for around 300 riders who were taking part and stopping to refuel!

As well as the Home Instead team helping at one of the pit stops with refreshments, Home Instead also donated and sponsored all the refreshments for the bike ride.

Sheena Van Parys, co-owner of Home Instead commented; ‘we always enjoy helping and supporting community events, especially when they involve fund raising for such worthwhile causes in the area. We look forward to being part of next year’s charity bike ride.'

Ripon Rotary Club thanked Home Instead for all their help and support in making the bike ride a huge success.
