Hello there,

  I want to raise money to complete a Kindergarten on the spring expedition next year. Education is something we take for granted back in the UK. If you live in a remote rural community here in Sabah access to pre-school education is for many not villages just not available. This is the chance to give many the children the chance of a great start in life.

My challenge is to coincide with Raleigh celebrating ten years of permenant residence in Sabah. I plan to swim the distance from Mamutik Island to KK then cycle the distance between basecamp and Mount K before finally with the expedition climb the mountain. All within 24hours.

Friends family mates give what you can I know times are tough at the moment but it will make my christmas and new year if you do give something

Thanks in advance
