As part of the Keepmoat Charity Cycling Challenge, their target is to cycle 2,000km across four days to raise £5,000 for two national charities. All monies raised will be split equally between two charities.  Against Child Poverty campaigns for an end to child poverty in the UK whilst Action Medical Research supports children affected by disability or those facing the challenge of caring for a child with a rare and devastating disease for which there is no cure.

Members of the team from Keepmoat and their partners will be cycling their way to this year’s Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) conference in Manchester. Each team member will be cycling the 105km route from the company’s head office in Doncaster (Monday, 24, June), heading along the iconic Holme Moss climb before arriving at Manchester’s Central Convention Complex.

 The annual Chartered Institute of Housing conference is the largest conference and exhibition event in the housing calendar.  Held over three days, the conference will provide thousands of delegates with an insight into the latest hot topics within the sector and will include over 100 speakers and 300 exhibitors.

Keepmoat will be hosting a series of Ideas Exchange events across the three days with guest speakers covering topics such as ‘no more extra care headaches’, ‘get more homes for less space, faster’ and ‘eat, heat or pay rent – new solutions to tackle fuel poverty’.
