Thank you to everyone who took part in yesterday’s Pedal Against Poverty cycle ride! More than 150 people enjoying a beautiful day out in the Lee Valley Country Park to help raise money for CAFOD’s poverty-fighting work overseas!
Riders as old as 79 and as young as five came together from all over London and the Southeast for the ride, now in its eighth year. Riders followed the towpaths alongside the River Lea on either a 10 or 19 mile ride through to Broxbourne, where everyone gathered together for a community picnic.
“We wanted to ride today as both of us have CAFOD supporters for a long time and love cycling” said Molly Warren (pictured left), of Welwyn Garden City.
Riding again this year was a 25-strong team from St Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls, Palmers Green.
“The staff and students are very aware of global poverty” said John Ravi, the school’s chaplain.
“We support CAFOD as they do a profoundly good job tackling this problem.”
The sponsorship money raised by each rider will go directly to help fund CAFOD’s overseas development work. If you’d like to contribute sponsorship generally to all of the riders, you’re welcome to do so at justgiving.com/pedalagainstpoverty2014.
