Stupid I know, but....I'm putting down the golf clubs and I'm going to be riding my bike 505km over 8 days in April to help raise funds for Tearfund's fight against child sex trafficking and exploitation.
I'm doing it as part of the Tour of New Zealand (www.tourofnewzealand.co.nz
), which will see us cover a good chunk of the South Island.
It'd be awesome if you could chip in a donation of some amount...please ?
If you're wondering what TearFund does - they're all about encouraging Kiwis to act for justice to relieve poverty amongst the world's most vulnerable people.
I'm also hugely supportive of their comprehensive approach in dealing with modern slavery which focuses on the '5 P's' approach: prevention, prosecution, protection, policy, and partnership.
Our Blue Star team have invested substantial sums to enter a team of riders into this years event and I'm very grateful to be a part of this.
