- My Story
Help support a worth while cause and give me encouragement to train
I have put myself up for a challenge this year something which I do not normally do, it is not going to be easy, training is getting harder by the day as the increase in distance is going up. To date in the last 3 weeks I have clocked up over 48 hours on a bike I have another 6 weeks worth of training which is only going to become more demanding.
I will be covering over 100 miles each day in June. With brute strength and determination, I be will scaling some of the most challenging climbs the North East and Scottish Borders have to offer. After the two months of training, I will power my way to Edinburgh's Royal Mile and every penny that you kindly donate to help me hit my taget will be raised to help provide power to poor communities with access to clean and sustainable energy.
Every Penny Counts no matter how small the donation. It will be greatly appreciated
Every penny I raise will help change the lives of those living in some of the poorest communities in the world. The impact of your donation will, quite literally, be life-changing.
£500 can provide one community in Nepal with agricultural training and tools, helping them increase their incomes by growing cash crops, and benefiting up to 500 individuals.
Looking at the bigger picture,
If all the riders hit our individual fundraising targets, it will help reach the event target of £80,000. That is enough funding to provide a village on the shores of Lake Victoria with access to electricity by installing a community owned and managed solar microgrid. This will provide them with the energy they need to power businesses, to light up their homes, and to chill and store their daily catch of fish.
