Pedal For Africa
Please note, this bike ride is for experienced cyclists only where both teams will cover a distance of 160 miles; in just one day!
Two groups of cyclists will embark on the journey, one starting from Birmingham, and one from Leicester. The two teams will meet in Stratford-upon-Avon for lunch before heading off to our ultimate destination – the Welsh capital of Cardiff.
The bike ride will take place the weekend before World Water Day 2018, which is celebrated by charities and fundraisers across the globe on Thursday, 22 March.
All you have to do is raise a minimum of £350 in sponsorship by seting up a JustGiving webpage and you can join the Penny Appeal Pedal for Africa bike ride challenge on 17 March. All funds raised go to our Thirst Relief campaign, providing safe and sustainable sources of water for people living in poverty in Africa.
Dirty water kills
Three children die every minute from diseases associated with contaminated water. It is at the heart of a daily crisis faced by millions of Africa’s most vulnerable families.
This is literally your opportunity to change lives – by providing a reliable source of fresh water to a rural village community in Africa you’ll solve a number of problems in one fell swoop by raisings funds to help build a Solar Panel Water and Power Centre, a purpose-built project that provides water and electricity to entire communities.
