Mini Fundraisers

It’s been a tough year, even more so for our charities. Our donations come from bookings, and this year we didn’t perform. But there’s no time for dwelling on it, and the kids have decided to take matters in to their own hands!

Last night, some of our Tigers staged a Sleep In! Trying to work around social distancing and the very young ages of our riders limited our options, but to sleep somewhere other than their bed meant all ages could get involved.

From car boots to vans, floors to sofas and even a cardboard house – the kids threw themselves into it and donations have thus far been extremely generous. We know times are hard for everyone right now, so we have been overwhelmed to double our target!

Over £500 raised and you can still donate here:

We are very proud of these little guys and girls, and we hope this fund for Allegra’s Ambition and Step By Step grows and grows over the season.


As is Tigers tradition, our riders choose the charities we will support for the forthcoming season.

Stage 1 of ‘Mission Charity Partners’ sees us ask the team and their families for causes close to their hearts. The only set criteria is they MUST be children’s charities.

Stage 2 is where the kids come in, taking a final vote on the proposed contenders. Democracy in action! We feel strongly that this process gives the children a real sense of ownership and purpose about the season ahead.

We have a lot of young riders this year but they impressed us no end with their very definite views on where to place their votes. We drew some pictures and they quite literally voted with their feet, standing by the picture corresponding to their vote.

And so we can announce, with great excitement, that the 2020 squad has selected to support End Youth Homelessness and Allegra’s Ambition. These two charities are quite distinct, but have in common that they support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.

We can’t wait to tell you more about them and their fantastic work over the coming months, and will be working hard to raise them as much money as we possibly can.
