Charities

We don’t want to make a big song and dance about it but we would like to ‘big up’ two charitable organisations that we are very proud to support.

Carten 100

SofaSofa has been a principal sponsor of the Carten charity 100 mile cycle from Cardiff to Tenby since its beginnings in 2006.

Over the last 12 years this amazing event has raised over £800,000 for various charities. Both Lloyd our Chief Executive and John our Finance Director have repeatedly joined thousands of fellow cyclists in completing the 100 miles in a day challenge.

Lloyd has now hung up his bike helmet for an organisational role but John will once again be pushing his pedals all the way to Tenby in aid of Velindre Cancer Centre this year. Good luck John!

JDRF

We are very proud to support JDRF as our official charity. JDRF fund research into Type 1 juvenile diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is not caused by lifestyle choices such as lack of exercise or poor diet, but rather is a random possibly genetic condition that afflicts otherwise healthy kids of all ages, like Lloyd’s daughter, Katie.

We like to support JDRF whenever we can and we were delighted to sponsor Natalie our head of After Sales who ran the London Marathon earlier this year in aid of JDRF, raising £5,000.
