My story

[p]Prodigal Bikes is a charity that gives a second chance to people in the UK and provides much needed transport to people in rural Africa. [/p][p]I’ve been involved with the charity since it started in 2016. I’ve seen it make a real difference to people’s lives here in Somerset and in Kenya where I went to prepare the way for the arrival first shipment of bikes in 2018. [/p][p]Now we are raising money for sending our next shipment to Kenya and as part of that I have signed up for a 5km Tough Mudder with some friends. Prodigal Bikes need a total of £6000 to send the bikes so every donation helps.[/p][p]The charity collects unwanted mountain bikes, which we then overhaul by working with long term unemployed people, ex-offenders and excluded school children. The skills people learn working with us helps them towards employment and further training in engineering-related sectors.[/p][p]The bikes are then shipped to remote areas of Africa, where they are given to schools and health centres to help people there gain access to education and healthcare. Without the bikes, these people often face walks of many miles.[/p][p]We have shipped 120 bikes to Kenya, and 10 to Malawi so far. We are just preparing another 20ft container containing 125 bikes, spares, tooling and manuals, bound for the Mwingi district, Kenya. There our in county mechanics will check them over and get them out to those who need them most in the local area. [/p][p]Tough Mudder 5k for those who are unsure is an 5km obstacle course featuring 13 challenges such as you'll see in the video below[/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true" src=""][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p]
