Supporting the Hands Up Foundation

As part of our ongoing effort to support charities in the communities we work with, we have donated £12,500 to the Hands Up Foundation.

Following the February 2023 earthquake, the Hands Up Foundation has worked to support those suffering from trauma in Syria and Turkey. Our donation will go towards continued efforts by thge charity and its partners to deal with the long-term implications of such a disaster, including mental and physical support for those affected.

Each year, we donate 1% of our revenue to causes that are important to us. Many of us at The Slow Cyclist have spent time in Turkey and built strong friendships with our team there. When tragedy hit last February, we felt strongly that we needed to help. It may be a drop in the ocean, but we hope our donation can go some way towards helping those affected rebuild their lives and communities.
