Story

Hi folks, thanks for taking the time to check out my fundraising page :)

Book Aid are a fantastic charity, working to increase access to books and support literacy, education and development in sub-Saharan Africa. In the past year, Book Aid have provided 543,280 new books to over 2,000 libraries. Since 1954, they've sent more than 30 million books to partner libraries, which is phenomenal.

I wanted to support this great cause, while also trying one last big challenge (well, two if you count the not drinking part!) before I hit 30.

Any donations you can give would be much appreciated!

See you on the finish line (he says confidently).

Gavin
