Thank you so much for visiting my JustGiving Page.

Pedal for Africa is a charity bike ride challenge: an epic one-day cycling fundraiser in aid of Thirst Relief, building water wells in Africa that transform the lives of village communities.

I will be cycling an epic 160 miles in One Day, from Leicester to Cardiff, on Saturday 21st April. This will be my longest cycle ride ever in my life !!!! So Please Please Please Donate whatever you can to this amazing cause.  I have spent so much time in training for this ride, and my reason is to help people in need.

This is literally your opportunity to change lives – by providing a reliable source of fresh water to a rural village community in Africa you’ll solve a number of problems in one fell swoop by raising funds to help build a Solar Panel Water and Power Centre, a purpose-built project that provides water and electricity too.

I personally visited this village in October 2017 (only a few months ago) and this Solar Powered System we are fundraising for will change the lives of these people. They will no longer have to travel miles and miles to get the most basic of human needs, in order to survive.  These people live such simple lives, yet they are so content with what they have.  This is an opportunity for us to support them, and improve the quality of their lives 

This Solar Powered System provides multiple water points across the whole village, providing thousands of litres of clean water pumped every few hours, as well as street lighting and electricity to the village. 

The system costs just £20k, takes 3 weeks to commission, but the effect will last for decades !!!

100% Donation Policy and we are hoping to get the system in and running by May 2018. We can only do this with YOUR help

Your Donation will make a difference. Please help with whatever amount you can to this life changing project. 

Thank you so much for your continued support and prayers, as always.
