Supporters cycled 180 miles from Carlisle to Berwick upon Tweed, raising thousands for Future of Taru, supporting the children and families of Taru, Kenya.
Last year, a group of supporters cycled 160 miles from Whitehaven to Whitley Bay and raised £4,800, money that assisted with the construction of Future of Taru’s secondary school in Taru, Kenya. This year, with new additions to the group they are setting off again, this time for a total of 180 miles between Carlisle and Berwick upon Tweed.
The Future of Taru set up a Giving Page to help their supporters to raise money, where donors can donate one of the preset amounts, or choose how much they’d like to donate themselves. The group aims to raise £5000, which will go towards the installation of solar power for the high school, as well as a dormitory for high school children.
“We have found using the Donr platform very simple, with the facility of having a QR code to scan being the most popular form of donating amongst our supporters, but also our very first attempt of fundraising through text message proving popular too."
A group of 5 supporters, including one of the charity's trustees, decided to undertake this challenge together.
After a cycle of 160 miles last year, the group challenged themselves to a total of 180 miles.
The group of supporters aims to raise £5000 from their friends and family, with £2198 raised so far!
