Ben Partridge, Chris Johnson, Chris Philpot, Daniel Johnson, David Coyne (Blackrock), Hamzah Risheq (Blackrock) are fundraising for HFW charity partner, Renewable World by cycling in the Earth Wind & Tyre event! It is a two-day, 216-mile, wind-themed cycle challenge.
Renewable World tackles poverty in developing countries by enabling the provision of affordable renewable energy systems for energy-poor communities. The charity works with its partners to provide renewable energy services where financial or geographical barriers prevent public or private sector solutions being effective.
In celebration of clean energy, the route passes by 11 iconic wind farms as it winds its way up from Durham to Edinburgh.
Should you wish to donate, please know:
- £15 could give a Nepalese villager access to clean, affordable and sustainable cooking gas for a year, preventing premature death from lung and eye disease.
- £30 could give a fisherman living on the shores of Lake Victoria access to energy, allowing them to refrigerate their fish and demand a fair price.
- £50 could buy a woman in Nepal a micro irrigation kit, enabling her to grow high value crops and improve her family's income.
Any donations, big or small will go a tremendous way and will be gratefully received.
