Bristol based financial services company Hargreaves Lansdown already collaborate with Bristol Sport Foundation on a number of Nascence projects including Reading Recovery, our Active. Healthy. Happy holiday camps, Bristol Bears Community Foundation’s Bright Sparks programme. The firm and their people are also great supporters of our various fundraising/ teambuilding events and we are all looking forward to their resumption later this year.
Break the Cycle is Bristol Sport Foundation and Bristol Bears Community Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have had to adapt this year’s event which will be held virtually for the second consecutive year.
This year, we will be running a two-month long activation that culminates in a celebration event with our event partners and professional clubs which will be streamed live from inside Ashton Gate. With chances for people to join in from the stadium (COVID permitting), at home or out and about on your bike we are making Break the Cycle 2021 COVID proof.

Martha Girling, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “This is our fourth year supporting Break the Cycle and it’s now a fixture in the calendar. We have growing numbers of colleagues supporting the event so to combine their passion of cycling and a desire to do the right thing for our community means we just had to get involved! As a Bristol based company, it is important for us to be involved in our local community and to be able to give something back”
