Donny McLeod’s cycling & Rowlands Gill Primary

Posted by: In: Fundraising 21 Mar 2011 Comments: 0

L to R. Chris, Ben, Tom, Donny, William, Anna, Ian as the funds raised are handed over.

The Nepal Schools Trust received a wonderful surprise last week.

Chairman, Chris Dickinson was visiting Don McLeod’s house in Rowland’s Gill, to be told that Don had recently completed a sponsored cycle journey the length of Britain, with proceeds going to both Nepal Schools Trust and the Rowland’s Gill Primary School PTA.

I would like to thank Don for this incredible effort on our behalf, and also everyone at the PTA, school and especially everyone who sponsored Don for these great causes.

His ride raised £424 for the Trust and the same for the PTA.

The funds raised are to be spent on the installation of a filtered water supply for the pupils of Narayani Primary School in Nawalparasi, Nepal. More on this development to come :-)

Well done Don.

In his own words…………………………….

“Having torn my achilles in June 2010, I needed to lose some weight! With only a weeks notice, the challenge was to cycle Lands End to JOG, on my own, in winter, carrying all my own gear. 960 very cold and lonely miles cycled end to end between 16 – 28th Jan 11. 50% of the time camping, the rest B&B or with relatives. Would I do it again? Yes!”

Money raised was split 50/50 between the trust and Rowlands Gill Primary PTA.
