The Long Ride Home

Long Ride Home Cyclists in CardiffOur MD, Scott Jones, got to go and see the team as they passed through Cardiff early Wednesday morning.

We’re very lucky at Illustrate. We have a nice new studio (that’s nearly finished!), top spec technology, working with some of the most exciting developments in the internet world. We get paid well, enjoy some sweet benefits (shout out to weekly seats at the Cardiff Devils games) and have a great time working with people we love.

Because we’ve got it so good, we believe that we should be looking to share what we’ve got with those less fortunate than us. That’s why we’re happy to announce our sponsorship of “The Long Ride Home”.

The Long Ride Home is a team of 12 cyclists, from different backgrounds, occupations and places. They’re cycling 480 miles in four days, from Swansea in South Wales, to Rotterdam in the Netherlands, starting Wednesday 5th October and finishing on Saturday 8th.

The team are raising money for Freedom Heroes, a programme working to rescue street kids and set them up with safe housing and education. They do amazing work in Kampala, Uganda and Siem Reap, Cambodia.

If you’d like to sponsor this incredibly worthwhile cause, you can give one of two ways:

  1. Text TLRH48 £??? to 70070. Obviously put a number, rather than question marks, after the pound sign…
  2. Visit www.justgiving.com/freedomchurch and give there. 100% of your donation goes towards the Heroes Project.
