Story

Thanks for visiting our site! From 2 February 2007, Helen Cooke, Will Sturgeon and Andrew Donoghue are taking on a 400km cycle challenge to raise money for the IT charity Computer Aid International.

Computer Aid takes donated PCs and refurbishes them for use in developing countries. It is easy to take computers for granted but the work of Computer Aid is changing lives and helping to bridge educational, social and economic divides.

Our 400Km cycle from Mount Kenya to Lake Victoria will be incredibly tough but we believe it’s going to be worth it as, with your help, we’re aiming to raise enough money to set up at least seven computing centres in Kenyan schools.  We’re hoping to raise upwards of £15,000 for this unique and important charity so please give generously.

Andrew (ZDNet UK) and Will (silicon.com) are technology journalists and will be covering the challenge and writing news about the progress of the fundraising appeal. If you want any more information on the challenge and why you should contribute send an email to:
andrew.donoghue@zdnet.co.uk or visit www.computeraid.org
