Case Study: British Heart Foundation London To Brighton Charity Bike Ride
Written by Sophie Gill, Fri 26 August 2022
The British Heart Foundation London to Brighton charity bike-ride has taken place each summer since 1976 and involves an estimated 30,000 riders. The BHF first brought in the help of Togather to manage a line-up of street food and drink suppliers to provide hard-earned refreshments for the riders and their friends and families. Togather worked at the event again, managing 10 street-food suppliers, 3 coffee suppliers, and 3 bar set-ups across the Clapham and Brighton sites.
The Event Details
Client: The British Heart Foundation
Venue: Clapham Common and Brighton Beach
Event type: Charity sporting event
Number of attendees: 30,000
What Did We Do?
Togather worked closely with the BHF team to curate a line up of food and bar suppliers to suit the demographic. Food suppliers were selected for the event based on their ability to turn around between 200-300 portions per hour, keeping queue times at a minimum whilst maintaining the Togather standard of quality.
Going The Extra Mile

"A massive thank you to Rory who looked after all the caterers on site, he was great and knew all the production elements too, so he massively took the caterers off my hands on event day."
