On Saturday 15th August, seven cyclists took on 100 miles by bike across Sussex to raise over £18,000 towards our work. A further ten participants cycled 50 miles in support. The scenic route kicked off in Chichester, taking cyclists through Petworth and down to West Wittering.

The money raised will directly support children living in poverty to continue accessing education during the Covid-19 pandemic while their schools remain closed. As more than 80% of the 1.2 billion children currently out of the classroom live in developing countries, we are ensuring that these children can access a quality education from home. With internet and smartphone access a rare luxury, we have developed innovative education programmes including delivering lessons via radio to over 10,000 children in Nepal.
