Nepal Earthquake

To all of you who have been to Nepal and met our incredible team, we have now managed to speak with Kamal who has single-handedly led many of you to Everest Base Camp, and to Iswari who manages the ground operations team in-country. Both are safe after the earthquake, but the landlines have been down and we are yet to get any more detail. Clearly this is a devastating earthquake and our thoughts and prayers go to all concerned in Nepal. We will be donating the bulk this year’s Charity Challenge Community Support Fund to the disaster relief effort. If anyone would like to further support the UK’s efforts to help the people of Nepal, please visit one of the following websites:

UNICEF

Save the Children

ActionAid

As we have more details, we will keep you updated.

Many thanks.

Save The Children Saigon to Angkor Wat Cyclists ready for the challenge!

It’s amazing just what kind of colossal amounts of money can be fundraised through Charity Challenges, we were delighted to recently hear that our ‘Saigon to Angkor Wat Bike Ride’ team for Save the Children have raised a massive £53,996.27 (up by an incredible £9,0000 from last week ) and consequently are well on their way to smashing their £55,000 target! The team have worked really hard collectively to raise this money, even from this very morning one of the team was dressed as batman in the chancery lane area with a collection bucket, if you are around there and spot him throw those pounds his way!

The team have also been working hard on their training too, with only 6 sleeps left before it’s time to jump on a plane to Vietnam and face down the challenge. To prepare, they have been braving the extreme British weather to get their cycle training in. Come Rain or snow – nothing has deterred them!

All that’s left to say is a massive Good Luck to the team for Thursday! Keep up the strength and remember what it’s all about… Oh and take tons of photos too!
