Farm Africa
Farm Africa is a different kind of charity working to end hunger and bring prosperity to rural Africa. For too long, Africa has struggled with the problems of hunger and poverty. Again and again, images of famine have challenged the world to end this human tragedy, but still it happens. Today, with climate change to deal with too, the need is more urgent than ever. Farm Africa is helping Africa’s farmers to end this cycle of despair. We’re there, on the ground, ensuring farmers have the equipment and know how to manage their land more effectively. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with farmers, we help the best farming techniques take root and spread so there’s food not just for this harvest, but for every harvest. We bridge communities, governments and businesses so that farmers can not only grow food but also sell it too, so that African farmers can take charge of their future and build better lives.

London to Cape Town challenge

The challenge

Robert Belcher and Stephen Cooper are attempting to drive 10,000 miles from London to Cape Town in less than 10 days to break the current world record, set in February this year, by more than 13 hours.


January 2013 was the 80th anniversary of the first record run between London and Cape Town. In February this year Philip Young and Paul Brace established a new world record by driving nearly 1,000 miles a day for just over 10 days from Cape Town to London in a Fiat Panda. Setting out from Marble Arch at 05:00hrs on Friday 4th October we can't be sure to beat their time but if we can leave something other than tracks behind that would be great – so please help us on the way by making a donation to Farm Africa who are helping African farmers end hunger.


“We’re full of the spirit of adventure, we’re well prepared and are both very much looking forward to the challenge. This is an ambitious record to aim for, but we have every reason to believe we can achieve it.”  Robert
