Charity riders complete 400 KM Tanzania challenge

An intrepid group of 30 professionals from the transport and logistics industry have raised more than £130,000 by cycling 400km across Tanzania in support of international development charity Transaid.

The challengers, who represent 20 major companies including Michelin, Lafarge Tarmac, DHL Supply Chain and Multimodal, spent five days on their bikes, starting on the east side of the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro – the most famous mountain in Africa – and finishing at the Ngorongoro Crater.

Each participant raised a minimum £3,300, with some taking the challenge further and setting higher fundraising targets, including Robert Jervis, Director of Multimodal who has raised more than £6,000 and Dave Howorth, Supply Chain Director at General Mills UK, who has already raised more than £6,000 and has set his sights on a final target of £7,000.

Gary Forster, CEO of Transaid, says: “Our challengers provide us with vital funds used to support our projects in Africa, which are aimed at improving road safety and access to healthcare and livelihoods. We are very grateful to all those who have taken on this challenge and for all those who have supported them with generous donations."

The full list of companies who participated is: Alpine Travel, B & Q, Belkin Ltd, Multimodal, Clipper PLC, DHL Supply Chain, DFDS Seaways BV, Dunnhumby,  The Environment Agency, General Mills UK Ltd, H & R Gray Haulage, Hermes, SHD, JB Transport, Labyrinth Logistics Consulting, Lafarge Tarmac, Michelin Tyre PLC, PF Whitehead Ltd and Yorkshire Bus and Coach Sales.
