Riders for Health

This year I've been helping to raise funds for Riders for Health (see link in sidebar) along with the members of the Young Church at Linktown in Kirkcaldy. Our aim for the year was to raise enough money so that riders could buy a motorbike for use by a health worker in the developing world. People within the church have really latched onto this project, as it's such an effective way of saving lives.

After a surprisingly successful fundraising effort, we sent a cheque for £1450 to Riders, being the sum equivalent to that needed to purchase a bike.

Now we have bought a bike, we need to keep it running, so we have launched the "Spanner Fund" to send them some money to maintain their fleet. The campaign ends at Christmas, and It's looking good so far.
