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 fond of…

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 10 years this amazing event has raised over £572,000 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. In 2017 SofaSofa has pledged to match fund all sponsorship raised by Carten cyclists for 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 are delighted to match fund all Carten cyclist JDRF sponsorship in the 2017 100 mile cycle event.
