The limited-edition leggings have been well received and we look forward to intensifying sales as we approach IWD 2023 to ensure we can raise as much vital funds as possible for the charity. This, combined with our fund-raising drive via our cycle hubs across the North East cements the collaboration and we look forward to supporting Smart Works Newcastle and the important work that they do.“

The specially commissioned leggings named ‘Kirsty’ (named after the first person who accessed the services) have been designed around the feedback of feelings evoked by Smart Works Newcastle clients and Amazing Jane customers and portray some very powerful messages.

“At Smart Works Newcastle we love to collaborate with like-minded organisations that share the same values of supporting and empowering women.
With our Cycle for Smart Works challenge and IWD23 on the horizon we are grateful to the Amazing Janes team for creating such a great product which will raise vital funds for our service and mean we can support even more North East women into employment in 2023.“

A healthy relationship with fitness is so important and the impact on wellbeing and general motivation in all aspects of life is so vital and can’t be underestimated. We are delighted to get behind the campaign and are looking forward to getting our spin on for Cycle for Smart Works next month, it’s a great way to celebrate IWD 2023.”
