Team story

[p]Thank you for visiting our virgin giving money page. [/p][p]In April this year Harry McGrath, Harry Behrens and Charlie Betton will attempt to drive from London to Bejing along the route of the Silk Road. On this trip we will be unsupported; negotiating boarders, deserts and mountain ranges alone. Given our young age and the dangers of such a trip, many have said that such a trip is a crazy fantasy! However, we are determined to raise money for such a good cause, and this will be driving us as we travel 10,000 miles in pursit of our goal. The link to our blog is London2Beijing.com[/p][p]The Lotus Children's Centre cares for and educates between 90 and 150 abused, abandoned or orphaned children. Many of these were street children who have been abandoned at a very early age, and were struggling to survive to survive in brutal conditions - Ulaanbaatar is the coldest capital city on the planet, and in winter the temperature can fall as low as -50C. Many of the girls on the street have been abused, some forced into prostitution at a very early age. Some others are special needs children, for whom there are very limited facilities in Mongolia. The most remarkable thing that Lotus achieves is to help these kids rediscover their self-esteem, and to develop their skills so that they are able to move on and lead independent lives in adulthood. [/p][p]The centre recives no state support and so relies solely on fundraising in order to provide the much needed support for these children. We hope that you can help us support these children and contribute to such a worthy cause. [/p][p][/p][p][lt]br style="color: #525252; font-family: Karla; font-size: 17px;" /[gt][/p][p][/p][lt]pre[gt][lt]br /[gt][lt]/pre[gt]
