Lifecycle Software is helping to raise for their Charity of the Year, Berkshire Youth, and we count on you.
On Saturday 15th October Lifecycle had a paddling challenge with Berkshire Youth, where we Paddleboarded/Canoed from the Berkshire Youth Waterside Centre in Newbury to Kintbury and back again. This is a distance of 11.5 miles with 14 locks in between. Employees, family and supporters got together for the fundraising event! The Lifecycle team are raising funds to buy new Zorbs for the Waterside Centre.
Kelvin Chaffer, COO of Lifecycle, says: “Family and friendship are the core values of Lifecycle Software, we want our company to be a place where people can grow their potential. We have a graduate and apprenticeship programme that is helping to progress the next generation of telecoms professionals, providing them with the confidence and skills to pursue a fulfilling career in IT. We have seen how Berkshire Youth do a fantastic job of working with young people to facilitate their growth to help them reach their potential and beyond. Last weekend, the Lifecycle team (with the help of their friends and families) each covered more than 10 miles of the Kennet and Avon canal to raise money to support Berkshire Youth’s Waterside Centre. This year, we aim to raise £2,000 so that BY can purchase some new Zorbs to help build confidence in the young people they support, whilst having fun.”
Kelly, Youth and Community Manager at the Waterside centre, joined the activities on Saturday. “My young leaders loved being a part of the event on Saturday, and enjoyed putting their paddling skills to the test in order to help those who had less paddling experience!”, said Kelly.
