ICAP fundraise for Youth Sport Trust

Youth Sport Trust is set to benefit from fundraising efforts made by ICAP employees taking part in the L'Etape cycling event.
ICAP fundraise for Youth Sport Trust

Financial services firm ICAP, who are headline sponsors of this year’s L'Etape cycling event, have chosen Youth Sport Trust to be the charity to benefit from the money raised by their staff taking part in the event. 200 employees, clients, friends and families will take to the capital’s roads on Sunday 25 September, each aiming to raise funds for their cycling efforts. 

ICAP L'Etape London, organised by Human Race and in support of Access Sport, brings the glamour of the Tour de France to London. The open roads route for the event takes in much of Stage Three of the 2014 Tour de France route and culminates spectacularly with a lap of honour around the Lee Valley VeloPark at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home of the London 2012 Games.

In 2010, Youth Sport Trust was selected as the charity to benefit from ICAP’s global Charity Day and received £180k to provide scholarships for gifted and talented young people in sport.

Helen Vost, Fundraising Director at Youth Sport Trust said:

We are absolutely thrilled to be the chosen charity to receive the money raised from ICAP’s fundraising efforts and to be working with ICAP again.

"Our mission is to build a brighter future for all young people through sport and ICAP employees will have the opportunity to choose the intervention the funds they raise are used to support.  Best of luck to everyone taking part in the race – keep at the training; it will pay off on race day.”

Youth Sport Trust’s Chair Sue Campbell and Chief Executive Ali Oliver have both signed up as part of 15 riders on the Youth Sport Trust team. To enter the race, visit ICAP L’Etape, London. To donate to Youth Sport Trust, visit here.
