Richard and his team finished the epic distance at 1pm on Tuesday 19th September 2017! Jon Pither (PML’s Executive Director) is Richard’s son and couldn’t be prouder of what they have achieved.
Before the race, Richard commented:
“I am riding to celebrate my 75th birthday for Village Water because I have seen the benifits of Village Water's work. Three cycling friends are joining me and it is a first-time challenge for us all.”
“I have selected Village Water as my charity because I know, from personal visits and my involvement as a trustee, how a community's health and general development can be transformed by the provision of safe water, sanitation and hygiene training.”
Village Water is transforming lives in Zambia & Mozambique. Since 2004 they've supported over 900 communities and 180,000 people with safe water, sanitation and hygiene. Their work improves health by reducing waterborne diseases, meaning children can go to school more and adults have more time to farm.
Well done Richard for completing the challenge and raising over £5,000 for his chosen Charity!
