A massive thank you goes out to all riders, fundraisers, sponsors, stewards and organisers who helped to make this year’s Pedal Against Poverty a huge success!
This year the event saw a record number of riders, with 204 coming out to show your support and raising more than £10,000 to help CAFOD’s work fighting poverty and injustice around the world. This incredible contribution is enough to provide two entire communities with the education and communication skills they need to defend their land rights against the threat of eviction by logging, agricultural or mining corporations.
Check out CAFOD volunteer Andrea’s video below to find out why so many people decide to Pedal Against Poverty every year:
