poster  v3.jpgWe are delighted to announce a fantastic new fundraising initiative that we hope will be an annual event - the Tour De Hica! This is a virtual bike ride around all of HICA's services. This event is in support of the SHINE Fund, the fundraising arm of HICA and every single penny raised goes towards the provision of activities, trips and specialist equipment all designed to make a positive difference to the lives of the people we deliver services to. Over the last year the SHINE Fund has helped fund Virtual Reality equipment for our homes and also a series of Tovertafel 'Magic Tables, an incredible piece of equipment which projects interactive games and experiences onto a table top. These tables have already proved to be a massive success and are the epitome of what we are trying to achieve through the SHINE Fund.

But the fundraising is a year round activity and we are always looking for new and fun ways to generate income. The Tour De Hica which will see two exercise bikes set up at our Head Office for 24 hours, from 12 noon Thursday 19th June to 12 noon Friday 20th June, while we attempt to cycle round all of Hica's services - a virtual tour of 500 miles. If you would like to support this event you can do so in two ways. Firstly - simply donate to the cause via any of our services or at central office, or if it easier via our dedicated Just Giving page: And secondly - come and join in the fun and cycle some of the miles yourself and raise your own sponsors.
