Practical Action

Practical Action helps people use technology in the fight against poverty. It works in partnership with communities to develop practical answers to their problems, based on local knowledge and skills and putting people's needs first.

Story

On 9th June 2012, I am taking part in Nightrider, a unique 100 km bike ride through London at night.  Just to make it a bit harder, I'll be going to do my radio show at Choice FM straight afterwards, so that could be interesting!

I am doing this for Practical Action - a really inspiring organisation who focus on using technology to make a real difference to the lives of some of poorest people in world.  Innovative gadgets and widgets that aren't necessarily leading edge technology, but they are appropriate technology that, very simply, transform lives. http://ow.ly/bi5v1

Although I'm sure it will be fun, it's still going to be tough.  So any sponsorship will really help to keep me going and know that what I'm doing will help to make a real difference.  You can sponsor me really easily by phone too:

Just text GEEK55 to 70070 and then you'll receive a text asking you to confirm how much you'd like to donate, reply to this and that's all you need to do!

Thank you very much for your support.
