We're fundraising for Tearfund

I'm raising funds for Tearfund's fight against child sex trafficking and exploitation in Asia-Pacific. The money you donate goes directly to prevention programmes, providing justice systems with the evidence to mount brothel raids and prosecute traffickers, and rescuing women and girls from slavery and giving them support to heal and restore their dignity and lives.   I actually can't imagine a worse crime, and as ever it's the most vulnerable of humanity who become the victims.  Around 5 million people are enslaved in forced sexual exploitation, almost all women and girls, and around four times that many more in forced labour exploitation - more than when 'slavery' was a thing.  And this awful injustice is largely fuelled by demand from rich western countries. Tearfund's work is systemic and comprehensive, and proven to be effective.  Thank you for every dollar or pound you can donate. 

Thank you to my Sponsors

Keep peddling, even if raining, and make sure you beat Ben Green from 2degrees who is also in the race....he says he spoke to you today...this is a great cause, so it is fantastic you are doing so much to raise awareness and funds to support helping women and girls victimized globally.



Go Anna!

Hi Anna Hope your ride went well. It took me back a bit - well two years and i have looked at the videoclips again. WE are hoping to ski next year, but i have been diagnosed with motor neurone disease so will have to leave it to the last minute to see if i am well enough. The charity and cause you are riding for is really good. Be blessed by the Lord in all you do. Pete
