Giving back is an important part of our ethos here at Clear Architects, and we are pleased to support various charities that are close to our hearts.
This year, Melanie Clear, founder and director of Clear Architects, has chosen to raise money for the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Melanie tackled the 100km Night Rider cycling challenge in London in memory of her father and raised nearly £2500.
“In 2014 I had to give up tennis due to a spinal injury that created a lot of pain. I embarked on personal training to improve my strength and decided to take up a yearly challenge to help those less fortunate than myself.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has helped halve the number of people dying from heart and circulatory disease in the UK, but sadly every day 100s of people lose their lives. It’s only thanks to support from people like us that the BHF can create new treatments and discover new cures.” Melanie Clear
Melanie has tackled previous charitable challenges, including the Night Walking Marathon in 2016. If you would like to support her in raising money for the BHF, please visit her Just Giving page. All contributions will be gratefully received.
This year the Clear Architects team took on the nail biting challenge to abseil one of London’s Iconic attractions, the ArcelorMittal Orbit at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to raise funds for Epping Forest Food Bank who provide amazing work and support to our local community. If you would like to support them, please visit their My Donate page.
In September 2017, the Clear Architects team completed the full Tough Mudder challenge to raise money for the Candlelighters Trust. Over £1,000 was raised for this worthy cause, which supports children suffering from cancer.
In 2016, the team also completed a 230km bike ride through Tuscany to raise money for Teens Unite, another charity that supports young people who are battling cancer. They raised more than £3,000.
We will be adding many more challenges and raising more money in the future, watch this space!
