We’re thrilled to announce that Schwalbe UK are supporting Innercycle.
Dave Taylor, Marketing Manager for the cycle tyre brand said, “We at Schwalbe know that riding bikes is not only good fun and great for physical fitness, it also benefits mental wellbeing. Being a supporter of a charity like Innercycle allows us to make a difference, helping them to improve mental health for individuals.”
Innercycle’s founder and unsalaried Chief Executive, Michael Martin, commented, “Although employers have a duty to ensure wellbeing among the workforce, it’s immensely encouraging that Schwalbe recognise the value of going beyond statutory obligation, proactive in addressing a major concern. Schwalbe are a respected brand demonstrating commitment, beyond lip service.
We’re delighted to partner and, on behalf of the trustees, my colleagues and future beneficiaries, I extend heartfelt gratitude in welcoming Schwalbe’s support.”
Mr Martin added, “Anti-depressant prescriptions have doubled in ten years, with anxiety and depression leading to 20% of all days lost at work, notwithstanding the impact of more serious conditions and, indeed, ‘presenteeism’. The NHS Five Year Forward View target is for a million returners to work yet 53% relapse within a year. “
“Our unique combined model has found favour among a range of professional bodies and it’s thanks to Schwalbe and our fantastic volunteers that we can empower more people to regain and sustain meaningful and purposeful lives.
Current focus for activity is in Hampshire, West Sussex and Dorset. We welcome interest from those able to assist – locally and nationally – please get in touch via www.innercycle.org or our own or Schwalbe UK’s social channels.”
