Bellfort Bikers From commercial fitout to fundraising
We’ve been a busy team here at Bellfort over the past year. Aside from being successful commercial fitout specialists, we have achieved outstanding results when it comes to our fundraising efforts. Because of our achievements, we thought it beneficial to create a new page on our blog which is dedicated solely to fundraising.
The Bellfort Bikers were created in November 2013 when we were working on a commercial fitout project. The boys started talking about people they knew who were battling illness, in particular, cancer. Bellfort’s director, Richard Bellamy, heard of the Ride to Conquer Cancer through a family member. He suggested that they undertake the ride and raise funds for the Harry Perkins Institute for Cancer Research. This led to the creation of the Bellfort Bikers. Since then, everybody on the Bellfort team has openly embraced the spirit of fundraising.
Team Bellfort the Commercial Fitout Specialists
In 2014, the team entered the Ride to Conquer Cancer. They cycled the gruelling 200 kilometres through rain, hail and shine. And while the last leg was almost a deal breaker, the team persevered. Even through pouring rain, they completed the event. Overall funds raised for the Harry Perkins Cancer Institute for Research was $12,473.95. Absolutely outstanding for everyone involved and a very positive model for future fundraising efforts.
Following this great achievement, the Bellfort Bikers decided that their interests were not only focused on commercial fitout but also fundraising. And now, a new charity is in our sights.
Youth Focus is an independent Western Australian not-for-profit working group to stop youth suicide. Youth Focus works with young people aged from 12 to 25.
They aim to help them overcome issues associated with depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. This is through the provision of free, unlimited and professional face-to-face counselling and other mental health services.

Bellfort Bikers set a new goal
