DWA Inclusive Ride to Get Disabled Children to School

On Saturday September 28th, 2013, DWA hosted an “inclusive bike ride” around Lake Vyrnwy in north Powys.  Twenty-five riders, representing four Wales Africa Links, and riding bicycles (and powered wheelchairs) to complete the 11.9-mile challenge.  The riders raised around £1,000 to “get disabled children to school” in Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia.  The event also hosted Mark Williams MP for Ceredigion, and Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Global Education, joined the riders.  He was pleased to see this awareness and fund-raising event, supporting a very often forgotten aspect of international development.
