Corporate Social Responsibility

The ICENI Centre warmly welcomed Colchester General Hospital’s Bicycle User Group (BUG) on March 22nd providing an opportunity for members to gather together in our reception area. The event was held at the Centre, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility towards the environment and well-being of staff within the healthcare community. This innovative project has been set up to encourage healthcare workers to cycle to work, helping to reduce the impact of car emissions on our environment and gain improved well-being through potential weight loss and improved fitness.

During the 2 hour drop-in event advice was given on route planning, useful equipment and bicycle maintenance.
