24 Hour Cycle, followed by a market to celebrate

Fundraising activities like this often involve participants seeking sponsors or donations based on the distance they cycle or the time they spend cycling. It's a fantastic initiative that combines fitness, community involvement, and support for a local organization. In a remarkable display of teamwork, determination, and a shared commitment to giving back to the community, Butler & Stag recently took part in a challenging continuous 24-hour cycle event.


The idea for the 24-hour cycling challenge was raise funds for Theydon Bois PreSchool, in order for them to stay open. The Pandemic has had a detrimental effect on the financial side of Theydon Bois PreSchool, as a result, they are in a state of urgency to raise money to recover from the last 3 years. Theydon Bois Pre School is such a large part of the community we would be devastated if Covid would be the result of them having to close their doors, as they have played such a large role in the community for nearly 60 years.


We know how much this means to not only Theydon Bois, but also Abridge, Loughton, Epping and the surrounding area. We decided that a cycling event would not only test our physical limits but also provide an excellent platform for raising funds for a local cause.


On the big day, our team gathered outside our Theydon Bois office, brimming with excitement and anticipation for a 4pm start. The atmosphere was electric as we embarked on our epic cycling journey. Dividing ourselves into smaller groups, we took turns cycling in shifts,
ensuring that there was always someone supporting the cycler. Through the dark hours of the night and the challenges posed by fatigue,
our determination never wavered. A special mention to Ted, Neil and Ella who covered these hours. They encouraged and supported
one another, pushing them to new limits.


The generosity of the supporters who showed up in person or contributed online served as a constant source of inspiration,
reminding us of the impact our efforts would have on Theydon Bois Pre School.

After the exhilarating 24-hour cycling challenge, it was time to come together as a community and celebrate our success. We organized a vibrant market in the Queen Victoria Car Park in Theydon Bois, which featured an array of stalls from local businesses, an exciting raffle with over 25 fantastic prizes and stalls hosted by Butler & Stag for the childern. The event was a true reflection of the spirit and camaraderie that exists within Theydon Bois.


The market served as a platform to showcase the diverse talents and offerings of local businesses. Stalls were set up by entrepreneurs and artisans from the community, offering a wide range of products and services. From handmade crafts and artwork to delicious treats, clothing, and much more, the market buzzed with activity and provided an opportunity for residents to discover and support the incredible talent within their own neighbourhood. To add to the excitement, we organized a raffle with over 25 enticing prizes generously donated by local businesses and community members.


The 24-hour cycling challenge was an extraordinary experience that brought our team closer together and reinforced the importance of giving back to our community. Through our collective efforts, we raised over £4,250 and counting for Theydon Bois Pre School, enabling them to continue their invaluable work. This event taught us that with determination, teamwork, and a shared vision, we can achieve remarkable results and create a brighter future for those in need. We hope to inspire others to undertake similar endeavors, knowing that together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of others.


We are immensely grateful to everyone who participated, contributed, and supported this event, as it exemplified the true spirit
of Theydon Bois and its commitment to making a positive impact.
