We have, for a long time, offered every employee the opportunity to take an extra day of paid holiday to do something charitable, but people have always found it a challenge to find something that you can do as an ad-hoc bit of charity work for just one weekday. So, we have decided to make that initiative much more collaborative and give everyone the opportunity to do the equivalent of a day of charity work in and amongst a working week.

Enter Wheeling to Wiesbaden!

Wheeling to Wiesbaden, 15-18 July 2024 for Emmaus OxfordWheeling to Wiesbaden is a virtual cycle relay from Intertronics offices in Kidlington, UK to Dymax offices in Wiesbaden, Germany – over 500 miles. We’ll be pedaling away on two stationary bikes for four days straight (15-18 July, 2024) to cover the distance in honour of a great local cause.

We’re working to make a difference in our local community by supporting Emmaus Oxford, a charity that addresses homelessness by providing active support to 28 formerly homeless people.

Emmaus provides a real, alternative solution to homelessness that works; providing people with a home for as long as they need it, and meaningful work opportunities in one of our social enterprises where they gain valuable experience, new skills and a route into independence.

Dymax has kindly partnered with us to help make this happen, and we’d love to get other partners, customers, and friends on a bike for a bit to help make the journey. Let us know if you’re available between 15-18 July to do a 25-minute (or longer) stint, and we’ll make sure you’re fed and watered.

Of course, any announcement of a charity fundraiser would be remiss without asking for your support, so please give as you’re able to the fine work of Emmaus Oxford at our Wheeling to Wiesbaden JustGiving page.

On your bike!
