Wear red for Nik - Friday 21 February

As you may already be aware, a number of individuals from the housing sector are undertaking a cycling challenge from North to South Wales to raised funds for a former housing association member of staff who has two young children and a rare form of cancer. Nik needs financial support to receive specialist treatment and care. The cycling ride will take place from 28 February until 2 March.

As part of the fundraising activity, we’re encouraging members of staff from across the housing sector to wear red on Friday 21 February in support of Nik’s cause. Wales will be playing against France in Cardiff on the evening of the 21st, so it’s a good opportunity to show your support for Wales as well as for the Cycle for Nik campaign. We’re proposing that everyone who wears red on the 21st contributes £1 to the cause. You can either collect all your donations and donate directly to the fundraising website (http://www.gofundme.com/Hope4NikkiCycle) or you can hand in your donations directly to CHC's office or at a CHC event.

You can follow the progress of the cycling team on the group’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cycle4nik

We will be encouraging people to tweet photos on the day, and the Twitter hashtag for the cause is #cycle4nik.

Thanks in advance for your support.
