Donated to Ocean Flooring’s £1850.00 Goal

Ocean Flooring’s story

This year we decided that we wanted to start giving something back to our local community. Even though we are only a small family run business, it has always been important to us to help out others when we can.

We chose this fabulous charity as a result of going out for a run along Hove seafront and seeing the joy on the face of some of their passengers. It was one of the most heart warming sights I've seen and it was then that we decided to get involved with Pedal People.

We started raising money in January donating money from each square metre of flooring that we sold which raised over £900.

Our next fundraising event is on 15th June and involves me abseiling off the i-360...If we were to hit our target, this would enable the fabulous Pedal People to take more residents out to feel the wind in their hair. It would also enable them to train more pilots in both bike handling and dementia support.

Thanks for taking the time to read about our fundraising page, we are really looking forward to helping more elderly people get out in the fresh air.

The Ocean Flooring Team

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.


Pedal People

Pedal People www.pedalpeople.org.uk We are a small, local Brighton charity.

Our volunteer cycle pilots ride out together with elder care homes residents - so they can feel the wind in their hair! We run several rides a day from elder care homes, year-round.

  • £20 provides a cycle ride to an elder.
  • £40 cleans blankets and cuddly 'dementia-friendly' bike pets for six months.
  • £75 provides Trishaw cycle maintenance and parts for a month. Our two bikes are out all the time each week and take a lot of wear. Tyres and brakes especially!
  • £150 provides dementia awareness and basic skills for two volunteer cycle pilots.
  • £450 maintains one of our big red Trishaw cycles for a year.
  • £1000 trains and supports a volunteer cycle pilot for a year.
  • £2000 provides cycle rides to 100 elders.

Many elders rarely have the chance to enjoy an outdoor adventure otherwise. Our special ‘Trishaws’ (three-wheel cycles with passenger cab up front) enable them to experience our city and nature close-up and chat with passers-by. 

All riding out with us enjoy the physical and mental well-being benefits. We are renowned for equal ratio of female/male cycle pilots. Around 75% of our passengers are living with dementia. Rides are comfortable, fun, fully insured and free to elders.  www.pedalpeople.org.uk

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
