Cycle through Vietnam and help a Waterloo-based children’s charity

London SE1 website team

Cycle the length of Vietnam, experience the challenge of a lifetime and in doing so help a Waterloo-based charity raise vital funds for children in need,to move on to a brighter future.

Participants will journey through spectacular Marble Mountains in the North to the bustling city of Saigon in the South. This 11-day trip involves cycling 630km over six days. Those taking part don't need to be experienced cyclist and we will give plenty of advice to make sure everyone is ready for the challenge.

Sarah Barber, Childhood First Challenge Participant said: "It turned out to be an absolutely incredible, exciting, exhausting, exhilarating, hysterical and fantastic experience- to list just a few of the emotions I went through!"

To take part in this unforgettable challenge we ask for a registration fee of 300 and a pledge to raise a minimum of 2300 in sponsorship. In return, entrants will receive all accommodation, biking equipment and fundraising ideas and support.

For over 30 years, the Peper Harow Foundation – based above the Firestation bar in Waterloo Road – has worked with children and young people whose lives have been severely affected by trauma, loss, abuse and emotional depravation. The charity's aim is to provide effective therapeutic interventions to help these young people overcome the impact of their earlier experiences and move on to a brighter future.
