Causes/Charities I Support - Click to Find out more
The Honour Village Cambodia - An education/ housing project I have been supported in Cambodia for a number of years. I have been lucky enough to go and teach on three different occasions . It is mostly run by locals with volunteers to teach English. A truly exciting project as I have seen the children grow and become bright young individuals. Everything is run for the benefit of the children. For more information go to http://www.honourvillage.org/
Bike for a Future - My friend Simon Nelson and his partner Kim are cycling all the way from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Paris to raise awareness for Climate Change. They hope to make Paris in time to lobby the World Leaders to make them aware how important climate change is. To see how Simon and Kim get along http://bike4afuture.com/
Heart Research UK - Helps in so many ways to support those with heart difficulties in the UK. They help refund research projects into heart disease to help aid prevention. They support healthy lifestyle projects to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle. I completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge in 2011 to help raise money for this great cause. http://heartresearch.org.uk/
