VMI Superheroes - WE DID IT and raised £20K!

VMI Superheroes - WE DID IT and raised £20K!

4 of us rode on Tuesday through beautiful countryside and lovely sunshine with a helpful tailwind 145km (close to 100 miles) to arrive in Harwich, where we boarded an overnight ferry.  The next day was heavy winds and rain, which we battled through for another 85km (about 53 miles) to arrive safely in Amsterdam to a wonderful Rijstafel.

Melvon, our understated support driver did a fantastic job of looking after us and is presently on his was back to London, ferrying our bikes so we don’t have to.

It was a resounding success seeing us raise a quite astonishing £19,200 so far and not very far from our very brave target of £20,000.

Why did we start this?

We started this campaign in 2017 and raised £12,500 because every day 24 people are maimed/killed by landmines DAILY.

It's true - every day 24 people have their lives changed forever and the tragedy is that mostly this affects children, who are just playing.

It is a cruel, capricious act of deliberately maiming/hurting/killing people and in Iraq, it is is becoming worse, with remote controls and fridge doors acting as booby traps in peoples' own homes when they return.

This is a charity whose aims are close to my heart and we have completed 2 events to raise money for this very worthy cause. (to make matters worse, in 2017, it was only 18 people per day and with worsoning conditions in the the Middle East, now it is 24, so your help is needed now more than ever).
