My Challenge:

120 km Mountain Bike challenge through Kenya.

The full cost of the trip has been met by us, 100% of donations go to Compassion to directly support children like Roselyne and Brigit.




Sponsored Target:

Online Total: £2,603.00

Offline Total: £675.61

Gift Aid: £630.75

Husband and wife for 16 years - simply put we love each other and cycling! Children didn't come along, but we have been sponsoring 2 little girls Roselyne and Brigit in Kenya for the past 3 years to help support their education, health and development, and their families, towards a brighter future.

To raise awareness about the joy of sponsoring children in 3rd world communities, to encourage others to sponsor, and for those who are unable to sponsor, to raise money for life enhancing initiatives in 3rd world countries such as solar-powered lighting.
