Beth is very excited to be joining us from Rwanda to Kenya and has written a little poem:
To you my friends,
Greetings I send,
With a request to ponder…
You may have heard of the long way home
The dedication to cycling Pol and Rob have shown.
They left South Africa on their bikes
On England, they have set their sights.
8000 miles their legs will pedal,
with their poor bum’s suffering the saddle!
Why? you may ask, well.. adventure and fun
But also to raise money for those who have none.
There are many AIDS orphans within South Africa
A project that helps is Lulisandla Kwmtwana
They support the children and foster families
To do this, they work in the community.
In this rural area it is difficult to travel
So they hope to raise funds for a 4x4 vehicle.
In this area there is no water mains,
So ladies carry barrels and suffer neck pain.
Hipporoller water project have a great design,
A barrel with handles that can be pulled behind.
These are the charities, what do you think?
Could you give some money to help the Zulu’s drink?
I am joining Pol and Rob, but am maybe more sane,
Or perhaps its because I can’t endure the pain!
From Rwanda to Kenya a 1000 miles I will go
If you feel inspired please let the cash flow!
