Story

We are riding from London to Bristol and London to Amsterdam in 2019 for the 3rd year in a row in order to raise £25,000 for MAG International.

We embarked upon these rides when I learned that 24 people are blown up by landmines daily and half of them are children and we want to assist in MAG’s aim to try to make the world landmine free by 2025, as this is cruel and capricious and blameless children deserve better to be able to walk without fear.

The great news is that MAG clear landmines and make peoples' lives better.  They have helped 1.4m people to avoid being blown up by landmines, cleared 100,000 pieces of ordinance in the last year and as a result, the toll on innocent human beings being blown up has reduced from 24 to 20 over the past year.  It still means that around 10 children are blown up daily, so our quest is still important.

We will ride from London to Bristol on 31 Aug-1 Sep 2019 and London to Amsterdam on 10-12 September 2019.

If you sponsor me between now and 4th July 2019, your donation will be doubled by the UK government as part of MAG’s Home Safe Home appeal. Home should be a safe place for everyone. Your gift today will help make families’ homes safe once again.

Your support will mean we can do even more to make home’s safe again so please, dig deep and sponsor me today!

Matched funding will help clear 21,000m² from unexploded bombs and landmines in Lebanon, while public donations support MAG’s wider work in other conflict-affected communities. Give now to make people’s homes safe again.

Please note that company donations are not eligible for UK Aid Match.
