Intrepid cyclists go the distance for World Land Trust SEARCH NEWS

George Christofis in Denmark.

Two fearless fundraisers are taking on extreme cycling challenges to raise donations for World Land Trust (WLT).

George Christofis

In July George Christofis set off on his cycle trip from Barcelona in Spain to Copenhagen in Denmark, a distance of around 1,300 miles.

The date of the start of the trip – 6 July 2015 – was particularly significant because it coincided with the birthday of George’s mother who passed away almost five years ago. “She was a strong supporter of environmental causes, and I dedicate this mission to her memory,” said George.

Congratulations to George, who reached Copenhagen on 5 August 2015 and raised more than £1,400.

Lewis Scothron

Also in July, Lewis Scothron travelled to Seattle, where he began a marathon 1,500 mile bike ride down North America’s west coast.

Lewis wanted to set himself a personal challenge, and raise money for charity at the same time. He aims to complete his journey in Los Angeles at the end of September 2015.

A conservation and biodiversity student, Lewis said about raising funds for WLT: “Any money given is greatly appreciated, as this charity does great work for endangered ecosystems and habitats globally.”
