Event: Nordoff Robbins and Childline Egypt Bike Ride, on 21 January 2010

We use music to enrich people’s lives


It's time to shake the cob webs off the bike, drag it out of the shed, blow up the tyres and start training for a bike ride next January in order to raise, hopefully with your assistance, much needed funds for Childline and Norfoff Robbins Music Therapy. In a recession such as we have now, Charities tend to suffer greatly so its even more important that we all help as much as we can. Both of these Charities assist children and you can find out more about them if you wish at and  note please that Nordoff Robbins will pay half of the profits to Childline from their collections here and elsewhere)

We set off on Jan 21 2010 for Aswan, Egypt, arriving quite late, then up early the next day to spend the morning choosing and checking our bikes, which are supplied, and add necessities like a gel saddle to avoid the total destruction of our nether regions. Over the following 48 hours we will cycle over 100 miles more or less  along the Nile ending up in Luxor, where survivors will take a deep bath, apply various muscle creams and perhaps a few celebratory beers.

I do hope you will feel able to generously support me in this challenge so as to raise as much as possible for Childline and Nordoff Robbins. l will of course be paying the £1400 cost personally so all donations will go straight to the Charities.
