We promote children's literacy and equality to help all children reach their potential


Focusing on childhood literacy is one of the most effective ways to improve living standards across the globe.

In June, I will drop my laptop and get on a bike, cycling over 300km with 60 other riders from Paris to London with TechBikers - all to raise money for Room to Read, providing children with an education.

Please support me with however much you can give.

If we get to over £500 I promise to host a homemade Italian feast at my place - as soon as I recover :)


All your donations will go straight to Room to Read, who have received the coveted Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator nine(!) years in a row. Funds will be used to build schools or libraries in developing countries such as Nepal or Tanzania. Funds go where the need is greatest.


In 2012 TechBikers launched in London as a means for the tech community to put down their laptops and pick up a bike to support charity, network and share ideas. The goal is to help children in need by supporting literacy charity Room to Read. Since 2012 over 350 tech professionals – including start-ups, venture capitalists and executives – have cycled 1600km between Paris to London to raise over € 300.000 for this fantastic charity.
