Whilst many of us are showing support for our NHS and other front line workers in the UK, there are countries around the world who don't have the benefit of the health service we have, but who are no less touched by the pandemic.
So we have great pleasure in supporting friends who as part of a group of 34, are collectively raising funds for Médecins Sans Frontières by cycling, running and rowing the 41,075km it would take to circle the globe - in just 28 days.
We want to do something positive during lockdown and give people something to focus on during these uncertain times. We also wanted to do something for those less fortunate than us; in countries that don’t have an NHS to support them through this where the effects of this pandemic may even be greater than those we are experiencing.
We will be raising money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) who put doctors and nurses where they are needed most. They’re doing so incredible things around the world and are totally funded by donations so everything we can do really does make a difference.
And what better way to mark our donation with another commission from our favourite artist, Darcey (aged 6)!
