Yesterday was an exciting day! Our team of volunteers loaded 120 bikes into a huge 40ft shipping container at our Somerset base. These bikes are going all the way to Malawi! In Malawi they will provide transport to teachers who currently spend much of their day walking between schools to teach. Its a privilege for us to help get these teachers to school less tired, and in better time so they can in turn benefit the next generation.
For this shipment we have partnered with the charity Hooke Court in Malawi. Hooke Court already do lots of great work supporting these schools and will be packing the other half of the container full with teaching equipment, clothes, and sowing machines to support their work in the community out there. Once packed the next hurdle is making sure a team can be out there to receive the container, then it will be shipped out in time to meet them there.
A big thank you goes to our driver Stuart, and Mission and Relief Logistics UK for sorting the shipment.
