GYBR Charities 2017


The Great Yorkshire Bike Ride supports a varied group of charities every year. Some are permanent recipients and some are 'rotating guests' that we support for a year or two. We also make smaller donations to some local sports clubs, youth groups & charity groups for their help with the ride on the day. Most of our recipient charities are Yorkshire based.

The proportion of the sponsor money and donations that each charitiy receives will be listed on your sponsor form together with details of how to send in your form and sponsor money. Sponsor forms are mailed out to registered riders only.

Please see the Direct Online Fundraising page of this website. All donating information and instructions will also be in your rider pack and sponsor form which will be mailed out closer to the date of the ride.

Please do not set up your own webpage for fundraising and please never create any pages, or raise any funds through Justgiving. Please follow the links off our Online Fundraising Page.

If you set up any other pages on Virgin or any other site we will not be able to trace your donations, credit them to you or add them to our sponsorship total.
