From Kharkiv to Krakovets – Centrick raises funds for Ukraine!

It’s hard to miss what’s going on in the world right now and everyone will be well aware of the devastation that is currently taking place in Ukraine. The war that is going on has caused so much unrest and destruction, wreaking havoc in regions across the country, and forcing many out of their homes. As bystanders, it’s heartbreaking to witness the invasion unfold.

At Centrick we don’t want to just sit by and watch, and as a business, we want to help in any way that we can, which is why we’ve decided to act. Across the Centrick group, we’ll be raising money for aid in Ukraine with our Kharkiv to Krakovets fundraiser.

We’ll be transforming HQ and setting up 4 bikes across the group which will be running non-stop for 8-12 hours in a bid to cycle the distance from Kharkiv in Eastern Ukraine to Krakovets in the west, on the Polish border – that’s the width of Ukraine and about 1053km in total! We’ll be asking members of the Centrick group to don their lycra shorts and get cycling in order to rack up the km’s and hit our goal.

James Capper, Head of Compliance at Centrick said “We can all see what’s happening in Ukraine and every day we see another heart-breaking story, many of us are left feeling helpless which is why we’ve decided to launch the fundraiser in a bid to raise as much money as we can for aid in Ukraine. I urge as many people as possible to get involved and donate to an incredible cause!”
