The charity bike ride will commence on 20th October 2023 and will be completed in one day. He will be leaving the building around noon. There will be tea and coffee available.

Mark Packer will embark on this physically demanding journey, on his 125cc motorbike, with a dual purpose – to raise funds for a charitable cause close to their heart, and to inspire other young people with his story of resilience and determination.

Bardsley Youth Project holds great significance for him. Mark shared, "Over the last 9 years, Bardsley has helped me with different things ranging from finding temporary and permanent housing to (being) the people I go to for advice and guidance." Donations in support of his charity bike ride can be made at .

Bardsley Youth Project CEO, Simon Ree, expressed gratitude to Mark Packer and his commitment to giving back stating “In the years we have worked with Mark he has come a long way, overcoming numerous difficulties to get to where he is today, enabling him to make a positive impact on society. The team and I are incredibly grateful to Mark for organising the fundraiser in support of the Bardsley Youth Project, and young people facing similar difficulties”
