    Weʼve raised £1,840 to provide scholarships for orphaned children in Sierra Leone

    Freetown, Western Area, Sierra Leone
    Funded on Friday, 2nd February 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On Saturday 21st October, Keir and Lewis will be attempting to ride 240 miles (386km) in 24 hours from Swansea to London, in aid of Access to Education Sierra Leone . We'll be setting off around 6am on Saturday and hopefully rolling into London the same time on Sunday, so long as our legs, our bikes and the weather treat us ok.

    We're hoping you can donate a small amount for every mile we cycle to this fantastic project-

    Access to Education Sierra Leone is run by three friends from UK and Sierra Leone, Laura Petkuté, Bella Mosselmans and Mohamed Bangura, who raise money to support many of the young people in Sierra Leone who cannot afford to go to school because they lost their parents to Ebola.

    Every £40 raised will go directly to providing a scholarship, uniform and school materials for a child for one year, so every donation you make will make a tangible difference to these children's lives.

    Since 2015, 66 children have been helped back into school for 2 years each via the project, and if we hit our target of £1400, that will support another 35 children to benefit from 1 year scholarships, or 15 children to get back into school for 2 years.

    We would be grateful for any amount of sponsorship, but if you'd like an idea of how much to donate, 10p per every mile we ride is £24, and 5p per mile would be £12.

    Thank you in advance for all your help!

      Keir and Lewis are friends from university, who share a passion for cycling. After finding out about Access to Education Sierra Leon via Laura Petkuté, they felt this would be a great opportunity to attempt an epic cycle for a good cause!
