That’s exactly what Dan Woods & Andrew Carp of Leek Parish are doing to support the doctors and nurses of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – Doctors Without Borders – in their fight against Ebola.

500 Mile Virtual Cycle Tour

On Monday 24th November, Dan & Andrew set off on their 500 mile Virtual Cycle Tour, that will see them “exercise biking” through Guinea, Sierra Leone & Liberia.

“We’ve all seen the devastation caused by the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. We’ve also seen the MSF health workers risking their lives, in horrendous conditions, every day on the Ebola frontline – all to help others in desperate need. We felt we just had to do something!” says Andrew, “Travelling to Africa was a bit out of the question, so we decided on a sponsored virtual cycle tour, using exercise bikes at the gyms we use.”

Dan & Andrew need your support!

This is a great opportunity for all of us to do our bit to help our African brothers and sisters. Sponsorship amounts can be taken into any of our churches and church offices or you can donate on-line at their Just Giving page.
