Helping to build education across Africa by cycling through the streets of London
Community Coordinator

It’s not every day that you see the Standard Bank brand racing through the streets of London, but a team of eager enthusiastic cyclists from our London office did just that!



Our Standard London cycling teams took part in the 10th edition of the award-winning London Nocturne, completing a 1.5km circuit around the city streets of London.


The riders raised over £800 for Build Africa, a charity which believes in the power of education to help end poverty, and work to ensure that children in rural Africa have the best opportunity to learn.


The focus is giving often vulnerable children the right infrastructure, resources, quality teaching and parental support to help them get the most from their time at school and go on to lead productive, healthy and happy lives.
