September was cycling month with PLASA & PSA bike ride event on 15th September raising over £1,600 to date!  The money raised will be used to help with mental health support for those in need in our industry.

Unfortunately due to terrible weather conditions, the Velo South cycling event had to be cancelled by the organisers.  CT & WL had both entered lycra clad teams into the event that was to take place on Sunday 23rd September 2018, raising money on behalf of backup.  You can read the update and plans to reschedule here on our news page.

September is also the month DiGiCo held their popular yearly quiz night in aid of backup, we will bring you an update on this very soon.

The next backup organised event is ComFest 2019 and we will be bringing you news on this soon.
