    Story

    Tour De Dunboyne

    Seven of us who are colleagues at 2468 have set ourselves challenge to cycle between our UK and Irish HQ's. That's a distance of some 330 miles (515 KM), over four days, between the 12th and 15th August 2019. We will do this in aid of Indreni Children's Foundation Nepal, with whom 2468 has worked for several years.

    Indreni was founded by Ram Hari Khadka and supports children who are severely disadvantaged in Nepal, providing them with a home and full education until they are ready to live independently. We are setting ourselves a target of £25,000, these funds will go directly to Indreni to finance the completion of a house for 34 Indreni children. You can read more about Indreni and Ram Hari's incredible story here.

    The cycle is approximately 350 miles over four days and averaging around 100 miles a day for the first three. There will be a lot of training involved for all the nutters who volunteered and probably a lot of sore intimate parts of the body when it comes to the event itself. It's worth mentioning that of our group of intrepid challengers, only me - Jon - has real cycling experience. The rest are just nutters, but nutters with big hearts.

    Every donation, no matter how small, will be hugely appreciated and will really help to motivate us when the going gets tough.

    And thank you.

      Thank you to everyone who supported us on our sponsored cycle for Indreni in August. The money that we raised (€25k) is being used to fit out the inside of the second home that is being completed in Kathmandu. They new building is beside the home that they already own. You can see it in the background in one of the attached photos. The first photo was taken in May of 2019. The second photo was taken last week. We plan to do an even bigger event next year
