Tour of Broadmead 4: Above & Beyond

Above & Beyond will be one of eight charities benefiting from this year’s Tour of Broadmead. They’re one of three good causes making a repeat visit in 2021, having first taken part in the third edition back in 2018.

The Tour of Broadmead is inspired by The Tour of Britain, which this year takes place from 5 to 12 September. The event is organised by Broadmead Bristol BID (Business Improvement District) and supported by PureGym Union Gate and The Galleries.

Above & Beyond

Above & Beyond is the official NHS charity for University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW). The charity raise money for projects over and above what the NHS can provide, including the most up-to-date equipment, more comfortable surroundings and innovative medical research.

The charity has recently supported a three-year wellbeing programme for every member of staff at UHBW to access psychological support and a new hoist for the hydrotherapy pool at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

They say: “We will make your donations from The Tour of Broadmead go as far as possible by using them in the area of greatest need at our hospitals.”

We hope to boost the charity’s coffers on day eight of Tour of Broadmead 4, when Above & Beyond volunteers  as well as staff from retailers in Bristol Shopping Quarter to replicate Stage Eight of the Tour of Britain, which will see riders cycle between Stonehaven and Aberdeen on 12 September. Distance 173km

Once again we are grateful to Pure Gym Union Gate for their support and the loan of two static bikes, which will be located outside M&S if it’s dry and inside The Galleries if it’s raining.

Volunteers from Above & Beyond will be on hand throughout the day, talking to shoppers about their work as well as holding a bucket collection. You can also donate online HERE.
