The Deeley Group has a long standing relationship with numerous local charities and causes in the region.
Please see below some examples of how we add Social Value to our local community.
Starley Sportive – Charity Cycle Ride in association with Coventry Road Club (100% of event income goes to charity)
Through the collaboration of Deeley Group and Coventry Road Club, the Starley Sportive is a new cycle ride that is gaining momentum each year.
Last year on Sunday 17th February 2019, 500 cyclists achieved a hat-trick of aims as the city’s Starley Sportive helped raise around £13,000 for charity.
The sportive – named after the Coventry men who invented the modern bicycle – was one of the first mass participation events celebrating Coventry’s 12 months as European City of Sport.
This year, despite being cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event has raised £9,415 for charity.
COVID-19 forced organisers Coventry Road Club, Coventry-based construction and development firm the Deeley Group and Coventry City Council to cancel the rescheduled date, although refunds were offered many generous riders have chosen to still donate their entry fees to charity.
The funds raised were donated primarily to support Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice – but some money was also donated to Leamington-based Young People First. A virtual ride took place via RGT cycling on the day the event was planned for, with all funds raised donated to support Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice through the coronavirus pandemic.

Work in the Community
Since our 80th anniversary in 2016 we have chosen to dedicate our time and resources to challenging projects in the community.
Utilising our expertise as a developer and contractor, we have engaged our supply chain on the following projects:
Belgrade Theatre- Theatre in Education
The Deeley Group is supporting this important local Charity which supports our youngsters in Coventry and Warwickshire to develop through drama – the aim is to inspire their imagination and so help our youngsters to become creative and more confident and so to develop all of their skills.
We have so far contributed £2,500 towards the appeal which is helping the Charity to raise funds to provide a guarantee of funding for the Charity for the next three years.
We are off to a good start with an official launch of the fundraising at George House on 17th June 2015 where the Bishop of Coventry (Christopher Cocksworth) and the Lord Mayor of Coventry (Michael Hammon) both came to add their names and to provide support to our fundraising efforts.
Anyone that has any ideas for fundraising please make contact. We will certainly match fund any funds raised for the appeal – Theatre in Education.
