Two women who are cycling from London to a school near Pattaya have nearly achieved their marathon ride.
One of the cyclists, Catherine, has a sister, Lucy Howett, who works at Garden International School in Ban Chang, Rayong.
Catherine, and her friend Liz, will be arriving in Ban Chang on March 20. There will be a celebratory last lap at 2 p.m. from the Camel Bar to the Camillian Centre, which is one of the beneficiaries of the event. Participants will include local bike clubs, motorbike clubs and parents and friends from school.
Cyclists Catherine and Liz are cycling from London to Thailand to raise money for charity.
The trip is taking place to help gather opinions from young people about why they think HIV/AIDS continues to devastate lives. This is research for Voices, a project that captures opinions from around the world in video clips. The ladies are also raising money for two charities: the Food Chain in London and the Camillian Centre in Ban Chang.
Anyone is welcome to visit their pair on March 20, or you can view their progress by going to www.onelittlewheel. com. Students at Garden have been monitoring the cyclists’ progress and once they arrive, the ladies will be holding workshops in the school.
