We are an animal charity working to improve animal welfare in Asia


Thanks for taking the time to visit my Fundraising page. 

My aim is to raise £300 to help save the Asian Moon Bears from asian bile farmers who are cruelly putting into cages for life for the purpose of extracting their bile for use in Chinese medicine. These bears suffer a life of torture into those tiny cages and with a hole in their stomach. 

Watch this video if you have time, it's short

The images of these lovable animals being into tiny cages in inhuman conditions and being constantly tortured during long agonasing years made me feel the pain and suffering. I was so sad and sick that I decided to do something about it: I donated, befriended & sponsored a bear and am now trying to raise funds to hep them further.

My challenge 

I will cycle up the Volcanoes mountainous region of Auvergne in central France in an attempt to get sponsors that can help me raise funds to donate to those to work hard to stop the suffering of these bears.

I will be cycling up 3500 metres over two days:

Day 1: Clermont Ferrand - Mont Doré (85 kms and 2,500m ascent)

Day 2: MontDoré - Clermont Ferrand (85kms and 1,000m ascent) 

Update: this was done last weekend 17 & 18 September, here's the story of my weekend cycling adventure up the volcanoes.

How to sponsor me

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe and they’ll never sell them or send unwanted emails.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity.

So please dig deep and sponsor me while I try to go up the volcanos on my mountain bike this coming Saturday and Sunday. Even €1 or £1 will do nicely!

Thank you!
