Tour de Clarksons raises money for The Clarkson Foundation
The Tour de Clarksons charity event saw 23 teams from 11 of Clarksons’ global offices come together to raise money for The Clarkson Foundation in September 2021.
Each 10-person team competed in a three-hour endurance cycle on static bikes, with members able to rotate on and off to ensure fresh legs and energetic sprints to clock up the highest number of kilometres. All global teams competed at the same time. With a live stream through a virtual route as well as a live leaderboard feed, wherever people were in the world, they could tune in to view the action.
At the end of 2020, Clarksons set up and launched The Clarkson Foundation, providing an opportunity for Clarksons as a collective to do more for the causes it is passionate about. The Clarkson Foundation, with its charitable status, ensures our giving can go further to create meaningful and lasting change around the world.
Over the past 12 months, The Clarkson Foundation has supported a range of good causes, including:
- The Wave Project - a Belfast-based charity that provides surf therapy for young children
- StreetChild - providing education to children in one of Liberia's most remote communities
- Greyhope Bay - a charity that focuses on marine heritage preservation in Aberdeen.
Event organiser and The Clarkson Foundation Trustee, Lily Bagshaw, commented:
"Clarksons' people have always been generous and charitable. Whether it’s getting sweaty in this years' Charity Giving Day cycling event or channelling our expertise, experience and time into charitable projects, the important thing is that a tangible difference can be felt by the charities we support. This is the first year that we are raising money for The Clarkson Foundation, and we want to set the bar high so that we can achieve genuine and positive change."
