Web Development Case Study – SACA

In 1989 a group of 14 aspiring youths decided to establish a challenge that could help both local and national children’s charities. They considered a number of sporting events that would test both their determination  and personal fitness.

The challenge would require endurance, fitness and careful planning. They set the standard for what has now become a yearly summer event lasting 2 days. The Birmingham to London cycle ride now attracts riders from all over the country and international riders each year and involves months of planning and adherence to safety management disciplines.

Our client, SACA asked us to reconstruct the website so that it will be easy to navigate and looks professional as well. The aim of this site is to inform the users what the charity is about and register for the ride. Also, the website gives guidance for personal fitness and general training.

Our approach for this project followed:

  • Analyse the content
  • Agreement of the specification (Layout, Function, Content, Template)
  • Uploading the new template
  • Sourcing the relevant content
  • Testing
  • Go live
  • Evaluation of project and then sign off

The structured approach that was used ensured that the project was completed in a professional, cost effective manner and also with in the time scale.

In 2009, celebrated 20th in succession. Over the years SACA has raised over £200,000 for childrens charities. 2009’s selected charity was Richard House. The Hospice provides care and support for life-limited children and children with complex healthcare conditions and their families. Please visit: http://www.richardhouse.org.uk/ for more information.
