Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Having been a keen cyclist for a couple of years now I felt that I wanted to do more than just cycle around the countryside for my own pleasure, so, I am joining the 2015 TearFund Tour of Scotland to ride 500 hilly miles to help raise money for the TearFund Children at Risk project. As a team we hope to exceed previous years totals of over £10 000.

8.4 million children are in slavery and we must do everything in our power to stop this horror. Which is why Tearfund want to protect 50,000 children vulnerable to trafficking, disease and disaster.
Trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world, ravaging the lives of 1.2 million children across the world every year. Tearfund's staff and partners are doing all they can to protect children like Nang from trafficking. Watch Nang's story here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIf9TgRkjuY (Preview
 
 
To give you an idea of how your support can help...
£36 can keep one girl safe through trafficking prevention training and skills training.
£60
can pay for a local volunteer to motorbike around the local villages, setting up trafficking prevention workshops.
£90 can train ten teenage girls with livelihood skills training, enabling them to start a small business.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
