Cure It builds bikes for homeless charity

Cure It has teamed up with charity team building company o3e to build and donate bicycles for a housing and homeless charity.

On 23 March, the team from Cure It met up at Chester Racecourse with o3e, a B Corp certified team building and events company, to assemble six bikes which were donated to Chester Aid to the Homeless charity (CATH).

CATH offers support, encouragement and a safety net for homeless people in crisis living in and around the city of Chester.

Each bike is intended to provide homeless individuals with enhanced mobility and access to opportunities within the community.

Belinda Harris-Grave, project manager at Cure It and organiser of the day, said: “We wanted our team building day to be enjoyable and memorable, but we also wanted other people to benefit from the day too.

“The Charity Bike Build, delivered by o3e, seemed the perfect option as we know people receiving the bikes will be able to access a wider range of opportunities in their area whilst promoting physical and mental wellbeing.”

With the support of business, o3e were able to donate over £371,000 worth of items to charities, schools and community projects last year alone, with 391 bikes valued at £156,400.

The team at Cure It were keen to contribute to this year’s figures towards o3e’s social impact, being a part of paving the path for a brighter future for people in the community.

Mark Woollett, team leader at o3e, commented: “I’m deeply inspired by the team’s commitment to fostering a positive ethos through corporate team-building initiatives. Contributing to the creation of six high-quality bikes for a noble cause resonates with me profoundly.

“It’s gratifying to know that our efforts will provide homeless individuals in Chester with newfound independence and mobility.”
