Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Almost 2 years ago I cycled 500k across the Zambian bush to raise money to build schools for the local kids. It felt so good to be able to make a difference thanks to the generosity of friends and colleagues that I felt I should do something similar, but this time for the under privileged kids of Leeds, my home city. I am supporting the Leeds Childrens Charity who take local under privileged kids away on a weeks holiday to Silverdale near Morcambe - all the more poignant as this is where my own grandma used to go when she was a child almost 100 years ago. So for this cause, I am cycling 500k through the heat humidity and mosquito infested jungle terrain of Vietnam and through into Cambodia.

I am not a cyclist by the way so it won't be easy. I HAVE PAID MY OWN WAY, so everything I raise will go directly to the charity.

My original target was £1000, but thanks to the generous support of family & friends, have decided to raise the bar to £1,500
