Radley to Romania cycle ride in aid of the Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal
Fundraising for The British Red Cross Society
Roger and Andrew Shaw will be cycling from Radley (near Oxford, UK) to Romania in July 2023.
We have family links between the UK and Romania and this is a challenge we have wanted to do for a number of years. It is also an opportunity for us to raise some money for Romania's neighbour, Ukraine.
We will be passing through: Radley, London, Dover, Calais, Bruges, Ghent, Brussels, Maastricht, Cologne, Bonn, Koblenz, Mainz, Frankfurt, Wurzburg, Nuremburg, Regensburg, Passau, Linz, Melk, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Timisoara. Much of the Route will follow the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.
As you know, the humanitarian situation is increasingly dire and desperate. Millions of people have no safe place to call home. More than 2.5 million have already left Ukraine, while countless more are still trapped underground, taking cover from the shelling, and desperate for a safe escape.
Red Cross teams have been working around the clock to get critical care to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and its bordering countries. But with recent freezing temperatures, and ongoing violence, an enormous number of people urgently need help right now.
