Take part in the Bridges Challenge
Bristol Giving Day will join together businesses and local community causes to spread generosity across the city. One day in the year to inspire extra charitable giving, and right proper fun to make a big difference to lots of local causes. Organised by Quartet Community Foundation with the support of the Bristol business community, Bristol Giving Day will be vibrant and inspiring as we join together to love our city.
Conquer the Bridges Challenge on Bristol Giving Day 9 October 2019 by crossing as many of Bristol’s 45 bridges as possible. Show you care for our place by donating £1 for each bridge you cross, helping raise £45,000 to support 45 local organisations. Discover hidden cityscapes and the open vistas of the Severn Estuary. Enjoy healthy competition with your workmates, clients and suppliers. Choose from 6 stunning routes.
This year’s event has been inspired by the Bristol Bridges Walk, which, in total, is a 45km walk that takes you across all of Bristol’s 45 Bridges that span its main waterways. The companion handbook to the whole walk “From Brycgstow to Bristol in 45 Bridges” by Jeffrey Lucas and Thilo Gross, is published by Bristol Books. (Our event divides the full walk into 5 routes of varying lengths and numbers of bridges, plus the full route.)
More information about the complete Bridges walk can be found at the Facebook Group “Bristol Bridges Walk Challenge” or the Bristol Civic Society website. Bridge images throughout this website, © Jeff Lucas.
