Donating Unwanted Xmas Gifts
Entry fee is £5 with all proceeds going straight to the people who need it most this winter.
Like last year, we're also giving you the opportunity to bring any unwanted Christmas gifts you received this year. Items needed by the charity include non-perishable foods, clothes and useful personal items such as toiletries and cleaning products. All items will then be donated to the Harrogate Homeless Project to help provide essential items for their residents and service users during the upcoming coldest months of 2022.
What to donate?
Items such as UHT milk, coffee, tinned meats, sleeping bags, new underwear, men’s deodorants, custard, rice pudding, sugar, laundry powder, toilet paper, olive oil, hairbrushes, nail clippers and cleaning products are all products we especially need.
What not to donate?
Although all items are gratefully appreciated, the hostel isn't in need of tea, pasta, soup, washing up liquid, tinned vegetables, cereal, hats, ladies sanitary pads, bedding and blankets. The also cannot take open food packages or home-cooked food at the moment.
How to Bring Donations?
Please bring items to Prologue at 9am before the ride begins. Riders cycling to the start can bring items in a rucksack, which will be stored for them while out on the route.
What We Raised Last Time?
During our Last Ride of the Year you raised a whopping £1,445 plus 2 jam-packed vans full of food, clothes and toiletries. Let's aim to do the same again!
We hope you can join us for the last ride of 2021 to support this vital local charity. We encourage you to bring your fellow cyclists, club mates, friends and family. Non-cyclists are more them welcome to join us back at Prologue for post-ride coffee and cake.
