Christopher’s story

Christopher

This is the second time that I am aiming to complete this cycling challenge for a brilliant charity, Envision, which aims to develop the employability of young people, typically from less advantaged backgrounds in disadvantaged communities. This brilliant charity empowers teenagers to take social action to tackle real life problems in their local community and to raise money for a local charity. So, there’s a double benefit – the young people develop their own skills and employability, and the projects and charities benefit their local communities. After the madness of the pandemic, when so many of our children have missed so much schooling and so many opportunities that they can ill afford to, this charity aims to give inner city children the skills to become leaders in their communities. Please give generously as this event is the life-blood of the charity and after C-19 put paid to the 2020 event, every penny counts.

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

ENVIRONMENTAL VISION

Environmental Vision

Britain has a deep social mobility problem. This not only limits the contribution that individuals can make to the economy and wider society, but it is also unfair. Envision wants to change this.


Young people from more disadvantaged backgrounds often have fewer opportunities than their more privileged peers to develop the social confidence, personal efficacy and other skills that are characteristic of successful adults.

We believe that the education system can help fill this gap for these young people.

This is why we are working in partnership with schools, harnessing resources in the wider community, to deliver proven approaches to developing character and employability.


We specialise in using social action as a vehicle for development. This means that as well as preparing young people for the world of work, we are also developing a generation of change-makers willing and able to build a better society for all of us. Many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds experience social problems first-hand and are therefore more motivated to change them.

Environmental Vision is a registered charity in England and Wales. Charity number 1095328​. Company no4422128.

Envision Cycling Challenge 2021

Envision

Britain has a deep social mobility problem that limits the life chances of our young people and the contribution they can make to the economy and wider society. At Envision we develop the employability of young people, typically from less advantaged backgrounds in disadvantaged communities. We do this by empowering them to take social action to tackle real life problems in their local community and to raise money for a local charity. So, there’s a double benefit – the young people develop their own skills and employability, and the projects and charities benefit their local communities. A detailed Cabinet Office funded trial has shown that the Envision programme develops some of the most critical skills for life and work, and so levels the educational playing field and enhances social mobility.


The Envision cycle challenge 2021

2021 will be the fourth year of our popular cycling challenge event. Over 3 days we will be putting brilliant riders’ fitness to the test with a 210 mile ride, taking on a new route from Buxton, in the beautiful Peak District, to London. Your donation will go equally towards supporting Envision's 2021-22 and 2022-23 programmes. Thank you so much for your support!
