Here are a few snaps from the past weekend of our happy cyclists courtesy of Mhairi Dunn. All aged over 40, they cycled 45 miles to raise funds for the Project.
There's been lots of exciting things happening with the Project over the past couple of weeks.
Fundraising events have officially kickstarted with a whopping 45 mile cycle in York. Seven fundraisers, all over 40, achieved this in 5.5 hours and braved the glorious British weather to raise money for the project. Kudos to you all. Its not too late to show your support, go over to our Just Giving page and donate. One of our volunteers Ali is currently planning for the upcoming marathon in Salomon Downs and there is a quiz night coming up in York.
There will be plenty more events coming up so keep a look out on our Facebook and Twitter pages for information on what might be going on near you.
On to more practical aspects about the Project, the pre-design paperwork is just about completed. This gives us a good breakdown of exactly what is going to be built and when. We have also drawn up a contract between the Uk team and the Kenyan team to ensure we will meet their expectations, which is a great step forward.
Stay tuned for more developments!
It's been a busy past week for the project and the pace really is picking up. With new members added to the media team it's been great to see lots of new ideas coming through to do with the design. This also means fundraising and promotional material is soon to be available and we can share this project even further. Fundraising clusters have also been allocated now to all the volunteers as we are quite a big group so having these smaller groups will make communicating and planning easier for the fundraising events and activities. These are allocated in terms of location meaning even during the Easter and Summer break fundraising can still go on.
Another exciting development is that flights are going to be booked this coming week which makes the first phase of the build feel much closer and much more of a reality. We are still searching for 10 more volunteers for the project so if all this is getting you excited or if someone you know would be interested, we'd love to hear from you.
