Twenty tworidersset themselves the challenge to complete the round trip of 888 kilometres in eight days, cycling around 100 kms a day, stopping off in Cowra last week.

“Each participant is looking forward to the adventure of a long group ride through this lovely countryside while knowing they are raising funds for a great cause,” said David Lefcovitch.

Proceeds from theGreat Western Ridego to theKatoke Trust for Overseas Aid, which raises funds primarily for the construction and operation ofKatoke-Lweru SecondarySchool.

The school is located in a remote part of north-western Tanzania and provides a quality education for 450 plus students who would otherwise miss out on secondary education.

The Katoke Trust for Overseas Aid is a small grassroots non-for-profit organisation powered by the enthusiasm and hard work of a small group of volunteers.

This means that funds can go directly to where they are needed most.

“This is my second Katoke bike ride” said Paul Wong Pan. It’s a wonderful experience and I know my efforts are directly making a difference to individual children as well as the broader community at Katoke,”

The group are being hosted by community organisations, churches and state schools for their overnight stays and welcome any community members who would like find out more about the ride, Katoke or how to donate to the riders.
