While fundraising was not the key mission in setting out on this bike tour it did provide a good opportunity to raise funds and so I chose to work with the Homeless World Cup.
I opted for this for a number of reasons. Firstly, and most importantly I like the honesty and the outputs they achieve. It’s not an organisation with large numbers of staff but it is an organisation that changes lives for hundreds of people. Secondly, it is of course an initiative that runs across the world – much the same as the bike ride. In 2012 72 National Teams participated as the Homeless World Cup goes to Mexico. Lastly, while being a global activity the organisation is led by a team in Edinburgh, just a mile down the road.
