Tour de Jersey - Jersey Hospice
As part of our growing support of the Jersey community, Ravenscroft became the lead sponsor for Tour de Jersey.
Taking inspiration from the Tour de France, the Tour de Jersey has for years been a much loved regular fixture in the Jersey cycling calendar to raise money for Jersey Hospice Care. Sponsored by Ravenscroft, the 2020 event became a virtual event throughout the month of August giving participants more time to complete one or more of the stages or, for the more ambitious, the whole route in one go.
'This year’s Tour de Jersey offers islanders the perfect chance to get out and explore our beautiful island while support a charity, which is at the heart of community. As Ravenscroft’s business grows so does our support of the local charities, events and voluntary organisations and we’re looking forward to taking part in Tour de Jersey,' said Haydn Taylor, managing director of Ravenscroft in Jersey,
The Tour de Jersey route has been designed by Cog and Sprocket owner, Ian Williams, a long term supporter of Hospice. He has designed and developed the main 100km route as well as breaking it into nine shorter stages that range from beginner and family friendly options to gradually more challenging routes which can be completed either as standalone challenges or as a staged course throughout the month.
Ravenscroft is also providing two fantastic prizes for the best Tour de Jersey photo posted on social media tagging Ravenscroft and Jersey Hospice Care with the hashtag #TourdeJersey2020. Participants can undertake the Tour de Jersey throughout August and are invited to choose to cycle any of the routes singularly, all of the routes as stages throughout the month, or take on the ultimate 100 km route.
