Bordeaux or Bust

We’re at it again… and this time it’s even more of a challenge

Following on from last year’s challenge, when we rode from Poole to Paris to raise funds for the Sparkle appeal, this year we are leaving from Paris making our way down to Bordeaux raising funds for a charity which is particularly close to us.

Sarah Hicks is Russell’s late wife; in 2002 they started a charity under Sarah’s nickname ‘Boo’ as it was one of her departing wishes to help children in Africa where she had spent time trying to overcome her cancer. Boo is a ‘no frills’ charity, they incur no unnecessary costs which would divert money away from the children that need it most.

In 2003 they formed a partnership with Vision Africa to build Boo ‘Seed of Hope’ a vocational training centre for orphaned and destitute girls in Nyamanche, Western Kenya www.seedofhope.info/nyamache.html.

This centre is fully funded by Boo and has now been running for 10 years providing hundreds of these girls with an education and training in vocational skills, life skills, and business skills enabling them to stand on their own and be self-sufficient.

100% of your donations will go to this project so that Vision Africa can continue their brilliant work.
