Youth Staff take on the Nightrider Challenge!

On the 6th June, Eikon’s very own staff members are taking on the Nightrider challenge to raise vital funds for vulnerable young people across Surrey.

Caroline Olivero, Head of Youth Work, has signed up to the challenge alongside Fullbrook School Youth Specialist, Cara Bennett. Both of these lovely ladies have been training hard to make sure they can successfully complete the 60-mile-long ride next month.

Nightrider is a cycling challenge through the streets of London. Passing iconic landmarks such as the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, Piccadilly Circus plus many more exciting sights. What really differentiates this event from any other, is the fact that it takes place at night! Setting off at 11:00pm from Crystal Palace, both Caroline and Cara will cycle throughout London until approximately 5:00am on the 7th June.caroline cycling

As members of the Youth work team both Caroline and Cara are fully aware of the immense difficulties that thousands of young people across Surrey are struggling with, which is the main reason why they have chosen to take part in this tiring challenge.

Cara said “I am really excited to be participating in the Nightrider 60 mile challenge this year. My motivation to do this is so that we can raise money to support the young people that we work with. From working with young people at Eikon I can see a huge need for continuous support and fun activities that the young people need and want.”

They have both set themselves an ambitious goal, with the view to ensure more young people receive vital support when needed. Please support Caroline and Cara on their journey, by visiting their sponsorship page.
