Catering at Barlby High School

We have previously informed riders of the catering arrangements at Barlby High School:-

Jorvik Grill – will be present from 9:00am offering their breakfast menu.

Livvy’s Ice Cream – will be present from midday offering her range of traditional ice cream.

These two companies are commercial businesses who will be selling their products to riders and have undertaken to make a donation to the Bike Ride charities from their sales.

An article in the Selby Times of 21st April, 2022 incorrectly suggests that they will be giving their products free.

News update

We’re writing to update you on the current situation in respect of the Bike Ride as we have had a couple of hurdles to overcome in respect of how the Bike Ride will operate.

Firstly. Virgin Money Giving, who have in the past processed money donated by event fundraisers such as the Bike Ride’s cyclists and claimed GiftAid has decided to close down in November as their involvement with the London Marathon has finished this year.

Secondly our bank, HSBC, in common with many other High Street banks will no longer accept cash payments into an account from third parties, which method many previous riders have used.

We have resolved these issues by switching to Justgiving on the one hand and suggesting BACS Transfers or Paypal payments on the other.

Our website is now ready to accept entries from riders and to offer simplified online fundraising.

So if you were waiting to sign up just go to our website and follow the instructions.

We look forward to welcoming you to Barlby High School next May 22nd
