With some nice weather and 2500 riders the CARTEN 2018 was a huge success, and we raised a total of £147,469 for so many great Welsh causes! We also dedicated the ride to a Ride for Simon.
Donations of £61,884 were for Velindre Cancer Centre and £50, 385 for Tenovus Cancer Care’s ‘Closer to Home Appeal’ in CARTEN 2018. We again included smaller donations for other great Welsh causes:
- Wales Air Ambulance
- National Association of Blood Bikes
- Pedal Power
- Stroke Wales
- Latch Wales
- Kidney Wales
- Tenby Sea Cadets
- Raglan Boys and Girls Club for their help in hosting us for a refreshment stop
- Burry Port RNLI for their help in hosting us for a refreshment stop
With a last minute cancellation from our official photographer this year we only have a few photos to share. If you would like us to share your photos from CARTEN 2018 then please get in touch!
Our 2018 campaign achieved an incredible figure of £34,900! We were very grateful to our regular sponsors Resolve it, SofaSofa, Tredz, Romilly Financial, Bridgend Ford, Persimmon Homes, AD Gas Services, ForeSite Surveyors and Integral Geotechnique for their continued support. We were also delighted to welcome returning sponsor Effective HRM and new sponsors Lewis Civil Engineering, Fussells, Hawkes and Sigma 3 on the CARTEN100 shirt for the first time. Thank you all very much for your very generous donations!
In addition to our shirt sponsors we also receive invaluable help and support from numerous other individuals and businesses. We would like to particularly thank Bridgend Ford and SofaSofa for their provision of support vans on the day of the ride. We would also like to thank those volunteers for their technical support on the day. A big thank you also goes to Steve from Mckenzie Dry Stores who supplies all of the bananas to keep us going along the route and to Prince’s Gate for keeping us hydrated.
