Sponsored Cycle for 2 schools + an orphanage in Uganda: Liverpool to Notre Dame de la Salette (S.E. France - 900 miles in 8 days)
After the success of last year’s Educational Project trip to Togo with 11 young people running summer camp activities for children in a secondary school and an orphanage (for which I did a sponsored cycle in 2006), I am this year taking another 11 SFX pupils to Uganda for a 17 day project.
To raise funds for the 2 schools and orphanage where we will be working in Kasasa and Ibanda (sports equipment and audio-visual equipment) we have been having fund-raising events in school and a charity concert at the famous New Picket venue in Liverpool.
To raise further funds, I, Brother James, undertake to cycle solo from Liverpool to the shrine of Notre Dame de la Salette at 6,300 ft altitude in the southern French Alpes (900 miles, 8 days) from May 24th to 31st.
If you wish to sponsor me you may send donations to:
Brother James Hayes,
St, Francis Xavier's Community,
Cheques payable to "Brothers Of Christian Instruction". All funds raised will be used to pay for equipment that we will be bringing with us to Uganda.
