My story

[p]In 2018 I cycled from the UK to Nordkapp in arctic Norway, the most northerly point of mainland Europe and back. It was something I'd wanted to do for years and a big tick on my bucket list of adventures. The trip took 4 months and I pedalled 10,600km (6400 miles). Within a week of returning home I realised that 10,600km in a straight line would have taken me well into China.[/p][p]That's when I started to think about cycling around the world. Over the next few weeks the idea grew and I realised that such a long trip should be done to support good causes and not just for fun.[/p][p]I chose MSF because I spent some time travelling with one of their employees who had just finished a mission on the Turkey/Syria border, and MAG after visiting South East Asia where they have landmine clearance projects that will continue for years, if not decades.[/p][p]I invite you to join my journey. Please help by making a donation and sharing this page with friends, family and colleagues.[/p][p][b][u]UK Aid Match Information[/u][/b][/p][p]If you sponsor me between now and 4th July 2019, your donation will be doubled by the UK government as part of MAG’s Home Safe Home appeal. Home should be a safe place for everyone. Your gift today will help make families’ homes safe once again.[/p][p]Your support will mean we can do even more to make home’s safe again so please, dig deep and sponsor me today![/p][p]Matched funding will help clear 21,000m² from unexploded bombs and landmines in Lebanon, while public donations support MAG’s wider work in other conflict-affected communities. Give now to make people’s homes safe again.[/p][p]Please note that company donations are not eligible for UK Aid Match.[/p][p][br][/p][p]You can follow me on Facebook - www.facebook.com/SimboBenbo/[/p][p]My blog - doesnotexpireblog.wordpress.com[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you[/p]
