Once again the cyclists are out raising money for projects in Uganda! The annual event has been a huge success, raising over £10,500 for the Namisindwa Orphanage in the last two years, and we sincerely thank all the individuals and ecclesias who have generously supported us. The financial stability of the orphanage has made such a big difference to the children's lives in Namisindwa.

This year we have set our sights on raising funds for a water storage project in the Ibanda district of Uganda, and have challenged the cyclists to cycle 50 miles up and down some of the steepest hills in the Mendips, accumulating 3,300ft of climbing and tackling climbs of up to 20% gradient.

If you wish to join us for the cycling and a day of fellowship, details and sign up are available at http://cycleforuganda.co.uk and a link to the BT donation page can also be found there should you wish to donate.

P.S. A date for your diary - next year's event is planned for Saturday 10th June 2017 and will be cycling 88 miles around the Avon Cycleway for Namisindwa.
