Linkcity races to Challenger

July 08th 2021

Over the course of the next two weeks, Linkcity will be virtually racing to our parent company, Bouygues Construction’s headquarters in Paris, Challenger, to raise money for our chosen charity of the year, The Magpie Project. Members of Linkcity have been split into teams, each racing to cover the 476km from our London Headquarters, Becket House to Challenger, collectively, as fast as possible by running, walking, or cycling.

As part of its commitment to the communities in which it works, Linkcity has partnered with the Magpie Project which provides practical support and advice to mothers and children under five in temporary or insecure accommodation in the London Borough of Newham. At the beginning of the year, when discussing what Linkcity could do for the Magpie Project, we pledged to help them acquire an electronic cargo bike, which they could use to deliver and collect items across the borough in a sustainable way. But, this costs a whopping £5,000! So all proceeds fundraised through our race to Paris will go towards funds for this e-bike. 

The race is on!
