These pictures were taken in March during a trip to Haryana in northern India, by trustees of the Buwan Kothi International Trust. They show the project that I am most proud of - the school that my friends and I have raised money to build in memory of my mate Gilly who died in 2007. In three years we have fundraised close to £145,000n
Yesterday, I had the really enjoyable task of arranging to transfer £40,000 from the UK to the charity in India running the Gilly Mundy Memorial Community School. Next year, after 12 months abstaining from long-haul flights, I may even get to see the school in person for the first time.
It's just a shame that, because of the injuries I received in March, I won't be able to take part in this year's fundraising cycle ride in 25 July. But if anyone reading this is in the Leamington Spa / Warwick area, you can sign up to take part here.
