The second annual Bristol Giving Day held on the 9 October 2019…
saw businesses large and small, families and individuals taking part in the Bridges Challenge: ‘From Brycgstow to Bristol in 45 Bridges’ – raising just under £10k for local charities.
Bristol’s 45 bridges (who knew there were so many) where matched up with 45 amazing local charities, a series of routes around Bristol each taking in a number of bridges were put together, businesses, families and individuals signed up to ride, run, or walk the bridges, some taking in one route many others taking in several routes all to raise funds for the 45 groups – simple really.
A ‘right day of proper fun’ was had by all despite the rain.
