Local Charity CEO embarks on Cotswold ‘Tour de Friends’ Cycle Challenge

When: 1st September - 20th October

Where: The North Cotswolds

Jo Hammond, CEO at local charity Cotswold Friends, is embarking on an epic 450km Cycle Challenge, visiting over 100 Cotswold villages along the way, and aiming to raise awareness and funds for the charity. Cotswold ‘Tour de Friends’ starts from Moreton in Marsh, where the charity is based, on Friday 1st September and encompasses 14 cycle rides over a 7-week period. The challenge will culminate with an 80km South to North Finale from Ashton Keynes to Mickleton, on Friday 20th October.


Cotswold Friends is a local charity offering services to older and vulnerable people, working to alleviate loneliness and isolation, improve health and wellbeing and support independent living. Helping over 2,300 people and with an incredible team of 340+ volunteers, charity services include Community Transport, Community Activities, Befriending and Carer Support, helping to keep people connected to their community.

Jo says, “The aim of my challenge is to raise awareness of the challenges older and vulnerable people face every day, living in our highly rural communities. Cotswold Friends helps clients from over 120 towns and villages in the North and South Cotswolds. I wanted to meet more of our clients, volunteers and funders and visit our Community Activity venues – hopefully raising funds to help us keep delivering our community services. I’m a bit daunted by the hilly Cotswold terrain, and there is over 6000m of climbing in total, so you might see me walking from time to time up the really steep bits!”
