Bike ride was a massive success

We got to Hull with no problems (well, apart from getting lost and doing an extra 20 miles…)

Plus, we are getting featured in Outdoor Fitness Magazine – but more on that soon. Until then, here are some photos (and a video!)

Bike ride getting closer

The sponsorship is starting to roll in, and there are currently at least 5 riders taking part in the NNN Boston to Hull bike ride. Total donations are at around £300 currently, and its not too late for you to sign up – just visit the bike ride sponsorship page…

Even better, we’ve had some great sponsors come on board to help make things run smoothly. Thanks to:

  • Lincs Print, who have agreed to help us out with printing some tshirts.
  • The New Inn, in North Thoresby – have generously agreed to let us pitch our tent overnight – where we will be refuelling after a gruelling day on the bikes.
  • Noel Craft Cycles – who are keeping us well supported with inner tubes and general bike needs.

We’ve had some early indications that at least one newspaper is going to cover the ride, so watch this space!

Sponsor our bike ride!

A group of plucky volunteers are cycling all the way from Boston to Hull, raising money for Names Not Numbers on June 14th and 15th.

They are going to be stopping off at beaches en route, shaking collecting tins – and eating ice creams..

We currently have 5 people racing, and our aim is to get a minimum of £100 sponsorship per person. So, if you want to donate, if you would like to race with us, or if you simply want to check out the route, visit our bike race page, and find out more…

A Busy 2014

We have lots of plans for this year already. Aside from our usual regular work, transferring donations to our projects in SA and India, we have lots of fun events planned.

In the next 6 months, you can expect:

  • A music festival in Boston, all proceeds going to NNN.
  • A sponsored bike ride from Boston to Hull, possibly starring Chris and Phil in fancy dress, with beach based fundraising en route…
  • Two pub quizzes, in Sheffield and Boston.

Sounds fun, eh? If you are interested in getting involved, or perhaps running your own event, why not send us an email?

New trustees on board!

Exciting news! We have some more names for you: Phil and Helen.

After a year of helping with Names Not Numbers behind the scenes, Phil and Helen are stepping in to become full members of the NNN team.

We are delighted to welcome them aboard, and look forwards to the breath of fresh air they will bring to our work. Watch this space for more news, more events, and ultimately, more lives changed.
