Sintons team takes on Cycle for Smart Works Challenge

This International Women’s Day, staff from Sintons are raising money for Smart Works Newcastle, a charity which supports North East women into employment.

Caitlin Edwards, Jess Fields, Catherine Hope, Hannah Mitchell, Faith Ramsay, Simon Anderson and Nicki Waugh are all taking on the sponsored Cycle for Smart Works Challenge.

Caitlin explained: “The six of us have set our own cycling targets and will be pedalling on road bikes, static bikes and in spin classes to meet our goals and raise money.

“Everything we raise will go direct to Smart Works Newcastle, which provides job coaching and interview clothing to women across the North East. Since Smart Works Newcastle opened in 2018 it has supported more than 2,000 women into employment. Amazingly, 67% of women supported by Smart Works Newcastle go on to secure a job within a month of their first Smart Works appointment.”

This is the second year that a team from Sintons has taken part in the Cycle for Smart Works Challenge.

“The challenge takes place over two weeks and we’re hoping to raise at least £250 between us – and fingers crossed we can make even more,” said Caitlin.

“Smart Works Newcastle is a cause we support all year round by hosting our donation station, but we especially wanted to focus our support in the lead up to International Women’s Day and highlight the achievements of women in the workplace.”   

Sintons is also home to a Smart Works Newcastle donation station where anyone can drop off donations of womenswear and accessories to help women on their journey into work.
