Tour of Broadmead 4: Children’s Hospice South West

Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) will be one of eight charities benefiting from this year’s Tour of Broadmead, and one of five good causes making their event debut in 2021.

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.

Children’s Hospice South West

Children’s Hospice South West operate three hospices in North Somerset, Devon and Cornwall and they support families that have a child or children with a life-limiting condition by providing respite, end of life care, emergency care and bereavement support to over 500 families across the south west. From Charlton Farm they support over 230 families in the Bristol and Bath area going through the most unimaginable of times.

It costs almost £4 million each year to run Charlton Farm and they receive an average of 16% from the Government so rely heavily on voluntary donations and support. They are celebrating 30 years of the charity this year – your support means they can continue to provide care, supporting families wherever and whenever they need us the most and helping to ensure that they can continue to be here for another 30 years and beyond.

The Tour of Broadmead

We hope to boost the charity’s coffers on day seven of Tour of Broadmead 4, when Children’s Hospice South West volunteers  as well as staff from retailers in Bristol Shopping Quarter to replicate Stage Seven of the Tour of Britain, which will see riders cycle between Hawick and Edinburgh on 11 September. Distance 194.7km.

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 Children’s Hospice South West will be on hand throughout the day, talking to shoppers about their work as well as holding a bucket collection. Donations can also be made using the contactless donation points by Tesco Metro and Primark and online at chsw.org.uk/get-involved/ways-donate/make-donation
