Do you want to really challenge yourself this summer?
Why not cycle from London to Paris for Architecture Sans Frontières-UK (ASF-UK) from the 18th-21st of July 2012 and raise money for a worthy cause? Join ASF-UK volunteers (and keen cyclists!), Andy and Naomi, on this great adventure where we will spend 4 days cycling from London to Paris, arriving in the french capital for the final day of the Tour de France in order to raise funds for local Cameroonian participants to be part of our international workshop this summer.
Architecture Sans Frontières-UK is a UK registered charity, concerned with education and training in the development sector. By raising awareness and supporting networks with local partners, in the UK and abroad, we aim to foster conditions in which individuals and organisations can be more effective, appropriate and meaningful. The workshop you will be raising funds for will be implemented in partnership with Cameroon Catalyst, a UK based charity and the Mosame Trust, a Cameroon based charity working in Eastern Cameroon. Cameroon Catalyst and the Mosame Trust would like to understand the impact of their projects and to develop a clear plan of action which is driven by the local community for the next stages of the programme. This has led to the development of a programme for a Participatory Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation workshop in August 2012. For more details see: http://www.asf-uk.org/archives/1070.
We will set off from London on the morning of the 18th, cycle 50-75 miles per day and arrive in Paris on the 21st. We will then have the 22nd free to watch the final stage of the Tour and there will be activities planned for the 23rd where we will visit a number of built environment related development organisations. The cost of the trip will be £320 and all participants must raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship money in addition. Ferry, accommodation for the duration of the trip, breakfast and team cycling jerseys are included in the cost of the trip. Return transport, lunch and dinner is not included. Participants must also have appropriate travel insurance. Places are limited to 10 participants so register your interest as soon as possible with Naomi at email@example.com to ensure your spot on this adventure for a worthy cause!
Set yourself a challenge to remember!!!
