Ride for Freedom 2019

A huge congratulations to the Lowery Team consisting of Neil Wrynn, Adria Garcia, Craig Paton, Richard Ashley & Elaine Crowder for completing the 39 mile Bracknell to London bike ride as part of the Ride for Freedom 2019 team last week, raising money for Unseen UK Hope for Justice and Slave-Free Alliance. The team were joining Gordon Miller for the last day of his 10 day challenge arriving in London on world Anti-Slavery Day. A great effort by all supporting a great cause.

Lowery was a proud sponsor to the ‘Ride for Freedom’, 10-day cycle ride around England and Wales (Cardiff) organised by Gordon Miller, CEO of Sustain Worldwide to support the rehabilitation of the survivors of the modern slavery.

Ride for Freedom 2019 was a 10-day cycle ride around England & Wales (Cardiff) organised to support the rehabilitation of survivors of Modern Day Slavery, and is planned to support the rehabilitation of survivors of modern slavery via the work of charities Unseen and Hope for Justice.

In the U.K., there are an estimated 13,000 victims of modern slavery - although many feel that’s a conservative figure. Men, women and children are affected, working on construction sites, in factories, fields, car washes, nail bars and elsewhere.

Unseen supports the victims of modern slavery. It operates safe houses, runs the Modern Slavery Helpline (a service that victims and the public who suspect a case of modern slavery can use), and influences the systems that keep slavery hidden. You can download their app to help you recognise and report modern slavery for Android or iPhone
