Our story

We're cycling the Tavistock Methodist Church circuit - all 6 Methodist churches in the Tavistock area, a distance of around 35 miles (50+km), including over 1,000 metres of ascent. We are doing it to raise money for Mind the Gap-Africa, a charity based in Bulawayo that runs a home providing for children who have been orphaned or abandoned; a good number of the children also have HIV/Aids.

The aim of Mind the Gap is to provide an increasing amount of accommodation for children whilst also offering additional support to other children and families in the area. Mind the Gap has purchased a 20 acre farm on which it is creating sustainable "family" homes with a house-parent and up to 8-10 children in each home. There are already 3 homes and the money for the forth has been given.

Mind the Gap seeks to support the whole needs of the children for life and the current major need, which we will be supporting, is to supplement the children's education; as the children get into their upper teens they need to move onto specialist courses to set them up for life, such as agricultural courses and these are not state funded. In addition, some children need to have school education paid for and all of them need school uniform and shoes all of which are expensive in Zimbabwe. So, Mind the Gap have set up an education fund and are targeting raising $10,000(US) - around £8,000 and our sponsorship will go towards this fund and we would love to be able to make a sizeable contribution towards it.

Thank you for your support, whether cycling or sponsoring!
