Staff from across The Regenda Group are gearing up for a mighty challenge, as they cycle 50 miles to mark 50 years of Petrus.
Petrus is a homelessness charity and was established in 1972. They joined The Regenda Group in 2017 and throughout their 50 years, they have continued to deliver their vision that together we will end homelessness and create safe spaces where all people can flourish. Being part of the Group has created new opportunities for service users, including the innovate training programme, Project 5, with The Learning Foundry.
And now staff from across The Regenda Group are jumping on their bikes to raise money for Petrus’ 50th year.
Sonia Denham, Head of Petrus, said: “For 50 years, Petrus has supported some of the most marginalised people in our communities to feel empowered to have their voices heard. The 50 Miles for 50 Years challenge is a fantastic opportunity for our colleagues from across The Regenda Group to come together, support each other and raise money to allow us to deliver vital services in our local communities. Lots of luck to everyone taking part and thank you so much.”
The 9 staff from The Regenda Group will be joined by a nurse from the Homeless Alliance Response Team, who provide medical care to service users at the Petrus Hub. The team of 10 will set off from Petrus Hub on Monday 18 May and cycle 25 miles to Tatton Park, where the Petrus Team is busy building their garden, Journey Home, ready for the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park later in the week. They’ll then cycle the 25 miles back to the Hub, completing 50 miles in just one day. You can read more about Journey Home at https://www.petrus.org.uk/tatton
Martin Davies, Director of Development at The Regenda Group, said: “I am really keen to support the incredible work that Petrus does and this is a fantastic opportunity to challenge myself, work with a brilliant team of people and raise funds for Petrus in their 50th year.”
