Raising funds following the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower
On Saturday 18th November Studio-Society hosted 43 participants to Ride & Raise. An all day (6 hour) spinathon for Family Action who are raising funds following the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower block in West London earlier this year. Family Action support those affected, and their families, in the difficult weeks and months to come.
The founders of Ride & Raise secured a handpicked selection of London’s leading indoor cycling instructors and a DJ to inspire and physically challenge the 43 sign ups!
Ride 1 was kicked off by Studio-Society’s Robin Persad who revved everyone up before Kasia took the stage and pumped up the energy in Ride 2. Sharon and Kyle (from Vibe Concepts) burst into action for Ride 3 with their unique beats and vibes. Ride 4 saw the take over of DJ Ashley and Andrew who injected further sprightliness ensuring the sweat kept pouring! The Madness of Melmania, aka Melvin sparked it up a notch on Ride 5 - invading the stage with his bootcamp style tenacity which then left Robin to close on Ride 6 - bringing the tunes to motivate the weary legs of our participants in a climax finale!
Ride & Raise was sponsored by Ollybars (natural energy bars that are vegan superfoods, gluten free, dairy free, additive free) who provided bundles of energy throughout the day to participants. More locally, Roni's very kindly donated bagels for lunch which went down an absolute storm. A HUGE thank you to both Ollybars and Roni’s for their generous support.
Post Ride, it was time to celebrate with bubbles and congratulate one another on such a fantastic achievement.
The current fundraising total has exceeded an outstanding total of over £4k. You can still donate on the Just Giving page.
