    Default Different side to the Cav

    Special Report: Mark Cavendish | Sky Sports | Video | Shows | Special Report


    Video on Mark Cavendish's charity work in Africa for the Right To Play charity. Different side to the man from the usual, cocky, swaggering attitude. I like that he spends time as an ambassador for this charity.

    Cynical side...

    Sky Contract

    Section 42: Off Season Obligations

    Subsection 8. Each rider will be partnered with a charitable organization and expected to perform at least ten hours of service. Team Sky will provide a film crew to record and publicize all service work through relevant media organizations. Service may involve extensive travel and interacting with people whose skin color is not the same as your own. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.

    No, I just guessed.

    Is the part about skin color "for real"? Well, that's another question.

    Wow, tough crowd :)

    For sure, a lot of corporations do make charity work mandatory. I work in corporate advertising, and the company that I work for has us (mid-level to senior management) devote a minimum number of hours to volunteer work.

    Despite the fact that it's mandated, it can still be rewarding. The volunteer work I did was the creation of an orphanage in North Korea. The group consisted of senior management from a variety of corporations, such as banks, law firms, architecture companies, investment firms, etc. So everyone was skilled at gathering donations, negotiation, communication, etc.
