Sisters & Misters Spin to Win
450 miles for The Good Life Orphanage As part of the inaugural Wonderful Week from the 2nd to the 10th of September, two twin sisters and their silly boyfriends will be aiming to ride a combined 450 miles in support of The Goodlife Orphanage & SMB School. We want to try and raise �500 to support this cause! It�s fair to say Ed and I have become a little obsessed with cycling over the summer, and it won�t be the first time we�ve attempted to drag our lovely girlfriends onto bikes. But this time we�re setting the bar high because we want to support the amazing work done by one orphanage in Kikambala, Kenya. The Good Life Orphanage gives a second chance to orphaned children in an area of the Kenyan coast that's close to where many visit on holiday. The charity has taken in over 50 orphaned children, and provides them with food, medical care and vitally, education. The teachers are there to teach, but also to act as loving parents which these kids do not have for one reason or another. The charity is - much like Wonderful - 100 giving, which means the costs of administration, travel and accommodation ARE NOT covered by donations. Every pound we manage to raise will go to the school itself. The Challenge During the Wonderful Week, Ed will be cycling up mountains in the Alps made famous by the Tour de France (most wouldn�t call it a holiday!) and he�ll be posting updates on his rides to social media. Lucy, Annie and I will be racking up the miles after work by doing a series of spinning classes indoors, and also some big rides at the weekend. We�ve pledged to reach and combined 450 miles and we�ll update on our progress via Facebook and Twitter. We�ll be putting a lot of pedaling hours in for this cause so please show your support by making a donation or even just sharing our page. Go one day without a beer or glass of wine and you�ve contributed to the future of these kids! Thank you!!!!
