London to Africa

Hackney GT are very proud to be supporting the Regenerate London to Africa Cycle tour.  We have have produced and provided at cost price jerseys for the event and will even be taking part for some of the journey.  Money is being raised for a very worthy cause which helps to support and mentor young people in London and abroad and there has never been a more important time for projects like this.     The full story can be read below and there is a link to make sponsorship donations.  

Nothing can stop the determination of the Regenerate team as we train for our biggest challenge yet…the London 2 Africa cycle tour. This year we wanted to do something spectacular to highlight our special relationship with Africa and show that  nothing is impossible for anyone in our London community.

It’s our most ambitious fundraiser yet.  We are not a huge professional team tour. We are a small group of young people from the Roehampton estates, along with a select bunch of Regenerate volunteers, with only our bikes, spare tyres and the spirit to succeed!

A life changing adventure.   Cycling 1300 miles from Roehampton to Tangier, we will have massive hurdles to overcome. At 75 miles a day, part of the team will cycle as a relay but others will be attempting to do it all!

Why Africa?  We send young people from our mentoring schemes in London on life changing trips to Africa, where they build schools, housing, social enterprises, establish social enterprises and create life long friendships. The impacts of these trips are huge, not only for the disadvantaged African communities, but also for Regenerate’s young people. They have a powerful positive long-term affect on individual personal development.

Regenerate brings hope to transform lives and communities.  We partner with urban communities in need, with a focus on children, young people and their families. We provide opportunities to empower people to make positive changes in their lives and the lives of others. Regenerate sticks by people for as long as it takes. We give encouragement and practical support to achieve their goals and transform their lives beyond their circumstance.

We need your support!  By sponsoring our team you will help change lives. Our target is raise enough money to subsidise 100 young people from our London estates to get life changing opportunities such as volunteering trips abroad in Africa.
