Kevin Yates

Challenge Date:

8th June 2018

My Challenge:

Muskathlon - Kenya 2018 - with 4MUK I want to raise £10,000 to help release children from poverty. I will be riding 120Km on a mountain bike through the areas we are raising money for. The riding won't be easy, but the biggest challenge is raising the money. This can be done by making a donation, or by sponsoring a child for just £25 per month (that's the cost of just two costa coffees a week for you and me)! I can even go and visit your sponsored child while I'm there and let you know first hand what impact you're making on their lives. Click on 'Sponsor a child' to find out more. With your help we are going to change lives.




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £3,866.44

Offline Total: £200.00

Gift Aid: £649.11

I'm 44 and very much a family man. I am passionate and fired up about this cause. We can eradicate child poverty in our lifetime.

Please speak to me about this challenge, even join me, we could get a tandem!

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed! Proverbs 11:25

After taking part in 4MUK - XCC Wales 2017 - We have the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. We need to step up, no child should live in poverty. Through sponsorship and donations, Compassion UK can equip children with food, clothes, education, healthcare and the tools they need to escape poverty. In addition, the money we raise will go towards buying these families a solar powered light (£62). This light reduces the need to burn kerosene lamps which cause ill health and cost a high percentage of income.
