Graham's African Challenge
University of Kent Director of Sport and Seeds for Africa Chairman, Graham Holmes, is undertaking a cycle challenge in the central highlands of Kenya. He will be mountain biking from Thika to Maua, covering a distance of up to 240 km across two days. The challenge will be on some very tricky road surfaces with the lowest ground level being at 6500 feet. A sight which will undoubtedly raise awareness of Seeds for Africa and help raise funds at the same time. However, this challenge has a primary purpose, in that Graham and the charity's Project Manager Amanda Gerrard will be monitoring a number of the projects funded by donors.
Graham says: "The Charity helps alleviate hunger and poverty experienced by communities by enabling them to grow their own vegetables and fruit for a sustainable future. We have a particular focus on primary school children, and work with our African co-ordinators who are essential to the success as it is them who deliver the education needed."
The challenge will also be profiled at an inaugural Gala evening to celebrate the great work of Seeds for Africa on Saturday 16 February (Valentines weekend), called 'LOVE Africa' put the date in your diaries now.
