Vietnam to Cambodia Cycle Challenge


Cycle through two countries' cultural centres

 

Two fascinating countries – one awesome challenge. Join us today on this magical cycle and experience South East Asia at its best!

Our 400km charity cycle route will take us through many traditional Vietnamese villages, passing paddy fields and alongside stunning mountains. We then cross the border into Cambodia and push on to the world famous temple site of Angkor Wat, arguably one of most fascinating wonders of the world! Taking part in this extraordinary adventure will not only leave you with lifelong memories but your sponsorship will also go towards making a real difference to people with life-limiting illnesses. Your funds will enable us to continue giving life-enhancing care not only to our patients but to their family and friends who are also affected.
 
There are three ways to take part in this challenge. For full details please contact here

  • Pay a £399 deposit and commit to raising £2950 (2016) or £3000 (2017).
  • Self-fund the challenge with a £399 deposit plus £1500 payment for costs and raise as much sponsorship as you can with the our Team ARHC fundraising support.
  • Partly self-fund the challenge costs and commit to raise the remaining in sponsorship. Get in touch for details. 
Joining Team ARTHUR will give you access to a wealth of fundraising experience as we will support you along the way with our fundraising tools, promotional items and media coverage. Remember, any UK taxpayer can increase their gift by 25p for every pound donated through Gift Aid. (If your sponsorship is covering the cost of your challenge we are unable to claim gift aid on any donation received from family members. Please refer to the Fundraising Team for further information.)

Dates for upcoming trips are: March and November 2016/17
