I am taking part in Relay for Hope

I'm taking on the challenge of Relay for Hope, to help families in rural Africa fight hunger and the climate crisis.

Did you know, that by the second week in January, the average person in the UK will have created a greater carbon footprint than a single person in Ethiopia will account for in a whole year? Those who have contributed the least, are suffering the most from the effects of the climate crisis.

Between January and March 2022, I’ll be challenging myself to get fit, cut carbon and use my footprints for good, by walking, running, or cycling my target distance. Every mile will be joined with others to help travel 30,000 miles (that’s an incredible 60 million footprints for good!) from the UK through rural Africa as part of Send a Cow’s virtual relay.

Please donate to my challenge! Your support could help families with vital tools, seeds, and training in sustainable farming, soil health, and rainwater harvesting, so they can stand up to extreme weather and grow enough to fight hunger.

Why I'm doing relay for hope

Tuesday 22nd Feb
Climate change affects everyone but in Africa, these impacts are felt much more strongly.
In just 2 weeks, the average person in the UK will have created a greater carbon footprint than a single person in Ethiopia will create in the whole of 2022.
So I'm using my footprint for good by joining Send a Cow's virtual relay and I will run, cycle or walk as many miles as I can until the end of March to support families in rural Africa. This support comes in the form of tools and training to help fight climate change and allow families to feed themselves.
£60 could support 3 families with tools, seeds and knowledge and training in sustainable farming, soil health and rain harvesting.
So please give what you can!
