An impressive 3,800 people took on one of our CSR Team Building Challenges last year, donating over £195k to charity! It's fantastic to see first-hand, the growth in the number of companies actively engaging with CSR.
Work with us and we can help your company to change its local community for the better.
We wanted to share with our clients, exactly what their CSR challenge looks like for the charities they are supporting, and hopefully tempt some newbies, who are thinking about a CSR team building event!
This isn’t just o3e’s impact, it belongs to each and every team that joined us in creating this fantastic legacy. Thank you for making it possible.

We are thrilled to be working with The Manchester Children’s Hospital, where we were able to donate an incredible 33 bikes in 2017, through our Charity Bike Build, to the children they support – many of whom are facing chronic illnesses and long-term rehabilitation programmes.
Along with 53 Sports Wheelchairs
Sports Wheelchair Challenges, donated an impressive 53 wheelchairs to grassroots disability sports clubs, allowing children and adults to access wheelchair basketball, hockey and tennis. Read more about these grassroots clubs and the difference these wheelchairs are making by clicking below.
And 26 VERY funky beds!
These funky beds have proved very popular with both our clients and the children receiving them. They have found homes with children in foster care and with children dealing with bereavement. Read more about how these fab beds are making a positive impact.
“What a great event. I was very impressed with the organisation, and every member of your staff I spoke to was lovely. You are very inspirational, and your passion and drive shines through!”
– Tara Carty, Corporate Partnerships Coordinator, Single Homeless Project
And not forgetting our 4 special trikes!
Look at that smile! The 4 trikes built now have homes with some very special children as well as at Disability playgroups, giving more kiddies to chance to learn to ride, and have FUN!
And a further £4,100 in cash donations!
Cash donations give charities flexibility, and allow us to support even more charities, where perhaps bikes or wheelchairs are unsuitable. Cash donations are made possible through our events such as The Great Philanthropic Challenge – think Crystal Maze, where gold tickets = cash for charity!
And what about the o3e team?
We’re a very Community minded company and team, which extends beyond just our team building events and work life. Last year, we once again supported The Prince’s Trust’s Palace to Palace Bike Ride promotional evening, as well as supporting their World Pay Christmas Fundraiser. 2018 also saw us starting to work with The Pos’Ablity People, running a complimentary Charity Bike Build for their members, where the charity worked with us to ensure our team building events are truly inclusive. We were also able to donate a special bike for one of the young people with disabilities they support. Since relocation to Brighton, we’re now keen supporters of Sailability down in Brighton, with our founder Peter, trained to support people with disabilities out on the water. We funded a grant for a young disabled athlete through Sport Aid, and made a cash donation to the Alzheimer’s charity.
We’re more than happy to lend any of our equipment out to charities for fundraising purposes, please just get in touch! Our bike and wheelchair simulators, plus our Smoothie bike have been put to great use by many charities already, including The Princes Trust and Access Sport.
