Story on Bikes 2020
Why we need your help
'Story on Bikes 2020' is a cycle ride about the story of Mamie Martin (in whose name the Mamie Martin Fund supports girls' education in Malawi) and plans to visit places in Scotland which are important to that story. You can do this ride while staying at home or, we hope, 'on location', depending on the Covid-19 restrictions in August.
Stay-at-Home Ride: You can do the ride remotely by cycling, in a place near you, any or all of the 47 miles from the home of David Livingstone to the home of Mamie Martin (Blantyre to Tarbet) - Book on the 'Stay-at-Home MMF Bike Ride' event on Eventbrite. You can clock up the miles in a family group if you'd like. Log your distances on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or on here!
You can support Stay-at-Home or on-location riders on this page by making a donation to the project or by supporting indviduals who might set up fund-raising pages here.
We also hope to have a fun day at the Kelpies and our final leg into Edinburgh will be, we hope, a family-friendly ride of 14 miles.
The Mamie Martin Fund was established in 1993 by the family and friends of Mamie Martin, to advance the education of girls in secondary school in North Malawi. This year (2019-20) we pay the fees of, and support, 138 girls across six schools, including six girls at a school for Deaf children in Embangweni. We work with the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia, Mchengautuba Community Day Secondary School in Mzuzu and with the RC Diocese of Karonga.
At least one MMF Trustee visits Malawi each year as part of our governance.
