Cycle for Uganda is teaming up with Leicester Westleigh Church to raise money for Eden House Welfare Fund alongside our aid projects that we fund in Uganda.
The ride is a fairly flat 56 mile ride from Leicester Westleigh Hall to Eden House Care Home in Coventry, and back again.
50% of the money raised will go to Eden House Welfare Fund. This will help with the residents' social and spiritual lives by allowing Eden House to provide a wide range of activities such as visits to nearby places of interest, flower arranging, coffee mornings and movement classes. Through these and supplementary spiritual activities Eden House seeks to develop a strong sense of community among the residents.
The remaining 50% will be split evenly between our two Ugandan aid projects for the year. We help fund the installation of water tanks and guttering in Ugandan villages to provide a reliable source of water all year round. This helps not only with drinking water, but the irrigation of crops which allows communities to be more self-sufficient. Our other project is a fund that has been set up to help carers of orphans in Uganda, where the carers may apply for a grant to help look after those in their care. Both these projects are administrated through the CBM.
We appreciate anything you can donate to these causes!
