Fundraising cycle ride completed! Thank you to 2PWRR - The Tigers!

What an incredible achievement!  We are honoured to have received support from 2PWRR The Tigers in the form of an endurance cycling test that the Corporals completed on 3rd December 2019. Thanks to so many donations - 136 individual donations in total - they have raised £3,699! (including Gift Aid). 

They cycled the 6,092 mile distance from Keogh Barracks Surrey (their new home) to Kohima India with a 25 man team over a 24hr period.  Their fundraising will support our sholarship programme in Kohima and will make a significant diffference to the lives of many children. 

Our CEO Sylvia visited the cycle team during the day and was very impressed by the incredible determination shown by the whole team. The entire distance was covered on state of the art indoor cycling machines in the Keogh Barracks gym. Each rider covered a distance of approx 200 miles over the 24 hour period.

We are very grateful to everyone who took part in this wonderful achievement! The Virgin Money Giving page link is here.  Thank you all for your support!
