Cycling enthusiasts from the team came together for a remarkable journey as Halo Service Solutions embarked on a cycling adventure from Stowmarket to Amsterdam. This initiative was not just about exploring beautiful landscapes but also about making a significant impact on the lives of people in need. The charity cycle ride was in support of Sightsavers, an international organisation dedicated to preventing avoidable blindness and promoting eye health around the world. Let’s dive into the details of this extraordinary journey, its purpose, and how it made a significant impact on a noble cause.
The Halo Service Solutions Charity Cycle
On 12th May, a team of 22 Halo staff set off from Halo HQ in Stowmarket, England, and began their journey towards the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The journey covered a distance of approximately 200 miles, providing both challenges and beautiful landscapes.
The core motivation behind this charity cycle was to support the work of Sightsavers, a global nonprofit organisation with a noble mission: to eliminate avoidable blindness and promote equality of opportunity for disabled people worldwide. Sightsavers works in some of the world’s poorest countries to provide affordable eye care, surgery, and support for those who need it most.
Sightsavers is dedicated to:
- Preventing Blindness: Sightsavers conducts essential eye health programs, including cataract surgeries, trachoma treatments, and distributing sight-saving medication to prevent avoidable blindness.
- Treating Eye Conditions: The organisation offers treatment to individuals suffering from eye conditions and diseases like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and refractive errors.
- Promoting Inclusive Education: Sightsavers is committed to ensuring that children with disabilities have access to quality education and equal opportunities.
- Advocating for the Rights of Disabled People: Sightsavers worked tirelessly to ensure that disabled people had their rights recognised and were empowered to lead independent lives.
We had so much fun on our cycle to Amsterdam – we’re looking forward to raising money for many more charities that are close to our hearts. Thanks to your help, we were able to raise a total of £1,868!
