13 more World Bicycle Relief Buffalo Bikes funded thanks to generous Six Day London guests
23 November 2019
Phynova Six Day London 2019 showcased some of the world’s finest track cycling talent, but it wasn’t just the riders that made an impact.
With great fundraising efforts from title sponsor Phynova and the Six Day London crowd’s gernerosity, an impressive amount was raised for charity partner World Bicycle Relief (WBR) UK.
As a result, 13 WBR Buffalo Bicycles will soon be delivered to communities in need across the globe, empowering individuals in those communities to thrive.
WBR, now charity partner of Six Day London for three years, are a non-profit organisation breaking down barriers to health, education and economic opportunity for people in need around the world.
With the help of Phynova, cycling enthusiasts had the opportunity to enter the raffle at Six Day to win a ‘plant-powered’ bamboo bike, worth more than £2,000.
The public could enter the Grand Draw raffle by simply making a donation to WBR. All entrants also received a pack of Phynova Joint and Muscle Relief Tablets.
The raffle was drawn at the Phynova pod during the last evening of the event and lucky race-goer Grant Louten was announced by Six Day as the winner of the bamboo bike.
Allison Dufosee, Chief Executive at World Bicycle Relief UK, said: “We are incredibly grateful not only this being the third year of Six Day being a charity partner but also the collaboration with their title sponsor Phynova, who was a terrific partner at the London event.
“We are so appreciative to Phynova for their enthusiasm and help throughout this year’s event, enabling us to provide at least another 13 Buffalo Bicycles to those who have only ever walked.”
Alice Lyon, Marketing Manager at Phynova, said: “Phynova were delighted to have partnered with WBR at Six Day London and to have helped raise enough money during the event to supply 13 bikes for their life-changing cause.”
