WFUK and Ride Earth at One Life Live

The Wilderness Foundation was present at this years One Life Live exhibition, held at Olympia on the 2nd to 4th March 2007. We had a very productive time promoting the work of the charity with some excellent responses from visitors, many of whom were particularly interested in our experiential learning programmes.

The main reason for WFUK being at Olymia was to support Tom and Andy of Ride Earth. Regular readers of the blog may recall that Tom and Andy have very kindly chosen the Foundation to benefit from funds raised during their round-the-world Mountain Bike challenge. The guys will be departing from our shores in June, setting off into Europe on the first leg of their journey. Once again we thank them for their support. We will post regular updates on their progress on our website and you can also keep track of their travels on their dedicated website http://www.ride-earth.org.uk

Their is now a dedicated online giving page available for anybody wishing to sponsor Tom and Andy, with proceeds going directly to the Wilderness Foundation. Please visit http://www.justgiving.com/rideearth

Thanks to Tom and Andy for arranging a stand at Olympia and inviting us along. Thanks also to The Independent Newspaper who sponsored the event and donated the stand space free of charge.
