Event details

Cycling WAHOYD in part on a rare 4 seater tandem

We propose to cycle WAHOYD.  As a gesture of working together with Malawi, we will ride some of this journey on a rare 4-seater tandem named Lucy. Dr George Chagaluka, a graduate of Malawi’s College of Medicine, runs the children’s cancer ward in Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre, Malawi.  He and his small team of doctors, nurses and support staff provide diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, palliative care, outreach and training.  CCM helps them with the expenses of this locally-based work, while the University of Newcastle, UK, also supports with back-up diagnostic expertise.

For daily illustrated blog, go to https://wahoyd.wordpress.com/

ALTHOUGH THE RIDE IN THE DALES IS NOW COMPLETED, WE HAVE MORE PLANS (ESPECIALLY WITH LUCY THE 4-SEAT BIKE) TO CONTINUE RAISING MONEY FOR CCM UNTIL THE TARGET IS REACHED. 

ANY FURTHER HELP HIGHLY APPRECIATED!

This page remains open for donations until year-end
