Here at Baltic, we love giving back to the community, and supporting our local charities. In the past, we’ve raised money for various charities ranging from Breast Cancer Awareness to Children in Need.
This year, we’ve decided to partner with the charity Together 21 so we can help them continue the fantastic work they do in North East England.
The Together 21 Project supports children, and young people with Down Syndrome, and their families in the Durham and Teesside area. The project aims to educate, and raise awareness around Down Syndrome, and provide a space for a peer support network for families.
Together 21 hosts various group sessions to support development of these children, and tailor each session to suit each children’s individual need.
So far, our team has worked together to provide the children at Together 21 with an extra gift for Christmas last year, and make their festive season a little brighter. We are excited to continue these contributions throughout 2018.
As part of our fundraising efforts this year, our Baltic cycling team, Coast Busters, will be cycling Coast 2 Coast to raise money for Together 21. This ride is 140 miles long, and will be especially challenging for our team!
We’re looking forward to keeping you all updated on our progress on the trip, and our fundraising efforts in the future.
