This week, more than 30 Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects staff, members of the Alder Centre project team, and friends of the practice are taking part in the Alder Centre Cycle Classic - a 360km charity ride from London to Liverpool over two days. The group of cyclists will leave from AHMM’s London office on the morning of Thursday 5 July and be welcomed at the NHS Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool the following afternoon.
This challenging ride will raise much needed funds for the Alder Centre, a new building at Alder Hey that will provide counselling and support for anyone affected by the death of a child. To enhance the building, the team wants to go the extra mile to ensure that the interiors and surrounding natural environment are also the best quality they can be. While funds for the building itself are in place, funding for these additional elements will have to be raised to create a calm and tranquil place surrounded by a beautiful garden space.
The team have been training hard for this epic cycle challenge but made time for a well-earned chippy tea during a training cycle to Brighton!
