Jonathan Freeman Aims To Tackle 140 Miles For A Great Cause.

Jonathan Freeman undertakes his longest ride ever, cycling 140 miles and 6,000 feet of elevation for two great causes

Championing Social Care is hosting the second Great British Care Cycle Relay (GBCCR), coinciding with Care Home Open Week (CHOW) from June 24th to 30th. This year’s event promises to be even more impactful, with more dedicated riders highlighting the significance of social care to local communities and the economy. The initiative provides care services with the resources to engage their local communities by opening their doors. Last year, over 5,000 homes, including CareTech services, participated across the country.

This year the Great British Care Cycle Relay which will coincide with CHOW, covering 300 miles from Sale, through Wales, to London via the West Midlands and the Home Counties will include CareTech Foundation CEO Jonathan Freeman MBE. Jonathan will be undertaking his longest ride ever, cycling 140 miles from Gretna Green to Manchester in one day, tackling 6,000 feet of elevation.

His ride aims to raise funds for two remarkable causes: the CareTech Foundation, and Carers Worldwide.

The social care sector employs 1.6 million people, more than the NHS, yet many struggle financially due to chronic underfunding. The Foundation’s grants significantly help these individuals.

Carers Worldwide has transformed the lives of over 180,000 unpaid carers and their family members across India, Nepal and Bangladesh. Unpaid carers are often isolated, stigmatised and overlooked and Carers Worldwide supports their emotional, physical and financial wellbeing.

Jonathan has witnessed first-hand, the transformative impact of both charities on individuals and their communities, making these two causes particularly meaningful to him

Generosity is key to the success of this fundraiser. Those wishing to support Jonathan and the two great charities can visit the donation page at
