BDP launches Joanna Yeates cycle ride

  • Comment

BDP has organised a sponsored cycle ride in memory of murdered Bristol landscape architect Joanna Yeates

Around 150 members of staff will tour the company’s offices in the UK, Ireland and The Netherlands. Staff working out of BDP offices in Abu Dhabi and India will do their own local events.

The cyclists will be arranged into relay teams to raise money for charity. The first set of riders will cycle out of London on May 6 and the last set will arrive in London on May 25.

BDP, which is fronting the money to fund the cycle, is calling on its friends, especially those in the industry, to offer sponsorship or donate cash to the cause, which will give money to three charities: Missing People, the British Red Cross and the RSPCA.

Yeates, a BDP employee, went missing on 17 December and her body was found on Christmas Eve.

In February, BDP’s Bristol office revealed plans to launch a new design competition and build a memorial in memory of Yeates.

Prior to her murder, Yeates had worked at the studio with her 27-year old boyfriend Greg Reardon.

BDP Bristol chair Keith Pavey described her as ‘very fine young professional person’ and a ‘good designer’.
