Story

I am Stuart, a fifth year student at the University of St Andrews, and I have a passion for cycling and raising money for good causes. I am part of a team cycling from Xi'an to Tashkent, 3,200 miles along the ancient Silk road to raise money for The Elnura Foundation and Fauna & Flora International who do amazing work along the route we are taking. For further information about our adventure please visit out webpage: http://cyclethesilk.org.uk/.

The Elnura Foundation work with two charities in Kyrgyzstan: The Center for the Protection of Children who take in children off the streets in Bishkek and allow them have a bright future, and Babushka Adoption provides the elderly population with support as they are often abandoned by their families.

Fauna & Flora International work with conservation projects in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to protect the endangered snow leopard and its natural habitat.

For more information of the charities and projects please visit their web pages for more information:
