UK to Yemen 3,873 Mile Fundraiser

22nd Oct 2020

Over the summer Year 12 student Josna George took part in an impressive fundraiser for Yemen.

At the moment, Yemen is going through extremely difficult times. Yemen has been in conflict for four years, leading to one of the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. It has been stated that nearly 2 in 3 people are in need of urgent help. I wondered for so long, how could I help?

With the help of everyone we have raised money together to help Yemen. There are 3,873 miles from UK to Yemen. The aim of the fundraiser was to collectively cycle these miles with the help of anyone else interested and for it to take place within one month. I set up a Strava club where people could record and run, cycle or walk any distance, so we could reach the 3873 mile target. The challenge started on Monday 29th June and ended on Wednesday 29th July. By the end of the month we had successfully completed and exceeded our target with a total of 4464.2 miles, in which my brother and I cycled 400 miles each. So far we have raised £2,494.41 (including gift aid) but the fundraising page is still open, should you wish to donate.

Thank you so much everyone for the overwhelming support and help!
