My story

We are taking on the challenge of cycling 70km in the month of May to improve our fitness, to explore some cycle rides near us and to raise awareness and money for the fantastic charity Christian Aid!

Lucy has been working for Christian Aid for 18 months and now she wants to give something back and David wants to join her for this challenge. Christian Aid is an amazing charity that work in a collaborative way with communities across the world, to help them fight for climate justice, gender justice, to build peace, and ultimately end poverty. Christian Aid takes an inclusive approach to helping people of all faiths and none, and from every background.

The money you donate could help ensure more people get the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their hopes and ambitions. £10 could provide one person in Burundi with the training that supports their family to set up a small business, such as selling home-grown vegetables.

We look forward to updating you on our progress with the challenge and to exploring Edinburgh’s cycle routes.

Together we can make a lasting difference. Thank you for your support!

How your money helps

Poverty pushed Aline to the brink. She was abused, homeless and hungry. But Aline pushed back harder. With Christian Aid funded small business training, she achieved what had seemed impossible, a vital income for her and her children.

Fundraising this Christian Aid Week will ensure more people in Burundi get the skills and knowledge they need to push back against the inhumanity of poverty.
