Story

Anna and I are joining the Cycle-a-Difference ride from Hanoi to Da Nang this November in aid of Newborns Vietnam.  After visiting Vietnam and the Hospital in Dan Nang where Newborns Vietnam is training neo-natal nurses and investing in equipment it is a great pleasure to be involved in this worthwhile cause again.  Seeing just how hard and selflessly Suzanna and all at Newborns Vietnam work for their cause is truly humbling and inspiring and unlike big charities there are little in the way of overheads so it is great to see such a lot of the funds raised hit their mark and make a real difference.

Anna will also be joining the ride this year as a support volunteer.  She will be helping document the ride with photography as well as assisting the crew.  Anna will be armed with her sketch-book and absorbing inspiration from the stunning landscape of this amazing country so we might see some special edition prints from her when we get home as we will continue to raise money after the trip.  Check out her work at Annaprints.co.uk - Items will be appearing over the next few months in the build up to the ride marked with contributions going to our fundraising effort.

You will also be able to catch us at selected screenings of Inspired to Ride, fundraising for CAD.

Thanks for reading and thank you all for your support.
