Caen to Cannes bicycle ride raises £17,500 – thank you to all our supporters

Well we did it and so did you. We cycled 1,223km in 9 days from Caen to Cannes and you came in and supported us.

There are still a few pledges to be paid and so we expect the total donated by individual supporters to reach £7,500 with GiftAid and on top of that The Green Room Charitable Trust (GRTT) gave £10,000. 100% of this money will go to ColaLife. The riders covered all their own expenses. If you meant to support us but didn’t quite get around to it you can still donate here: or here

Here is our ‘video thank you’ to you all. This was recorded in the early evening of the last day shortly after our arrival in Cannes.

We received some great messages from donors before and during the ride but this one from the GRTT sums them up. They said:

Dear ColaLife

At The Green Room Charitable Trust we have been following your progress since providing support through The Funding Network many years ago. We have been impressed with your commitment and achievements and would like to support you in the next phase of your project with a donation of £10,000…

Kind regards
Tom and Kelly Prickett

This funding and vote of confidence in our work will be catalytic in helping us move the experience and learning from Zambia to other countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
