The Connection at St Martin's provides a range of vital services to help homeless and vulnerable people take the steps they need to in order to get back into society. In the last year, they've supported more than 100 people into new work, among other essential services.

I have been cycling serously for more than 5 years; this is my opportunity to turn a hobby into a force for good. So please, if you're able, dig deep and know that your money is going directly towards helping the homeless (91p in every £1 goes directly into services which support the homeless).

Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride

August Bank Holiday, 24-27 August 2018: The Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride is an annual 200-mile 4-day sponsored event to raise funds to support the work of The Connection with homeless and vulnerable people. This year is our 10th Anniversary, and we have set an ambitious fundraising target of £25,000. Please help us to achieve it!

We follow the route of the Queen Eleanor crosses from Harby near Lincoln to London, staying in church halls overnight. The longest day is about 65 miles. There are up to 30 of us, and the ride is challenging, great fun, and for an excellent cause.
