Calling all cyclists!

In this our 35th year we are exploring new fundraising ideas and are delighted to say that Archway will be part of the 2017 Bike Oxford Charity Cycle Event on Sunday 7 May.

Archway are putting together a team for a 25 mile ride, but there are also 50 or 80 mile options to choose for individual sponsors.

The route starts at the Oxford University Rugby Club on Iffley Road. The event is organised by Iconic Cycling Events and so we will be joining hundreds of other riders cycling for their own charities. A full route and back-up support service is provided by Iconic.

So why not join the Archway cyclists for a great way to raise funds, make new friends and enjoy the countryside!

Ready to get pedalling?
To register for this please email Conrad at the Archway office. He will then give you a code to register online at at no cost to you.

We will also be setting up an online Archway fundraising sponsorship page for you to share with your friends - or you could set up your own if preferred. There is no minimum sponsorship required.

Flat 73: a one-hour play about loneliness

Oxfordshire based company Human Story Theatre are touring their one-hour play about loneliness - 'Flat 37' by Gayle Poole in the London and Oxford area throughout March and April.

"Battersby Buildings have 75 flats, yet few residents know each other. Beryl, recently widowed lives on the ground floor, television her only companion. Above her lives Chelsea, struggling as a newly single mum. Along the corridor lives Simon, a young man with learning disabilities and a passion for ‘flash mobbing’. On the top floor lives Laura who, unbeknownst to them, connects them in her role as a Samaritan – they call her when they are feeling at their loneliest."

Flat 73 includes a Q&A with the Samaritans and local loneliness organisations, including Archway. Tour details and booking information below - hope to see you there!
