CYCLE SRI LANKA: A COAST-TO-COAST CHALLENGE! September 2003
 
 
Phoenix PLCLetterstone PLC

In September 2003, 20 individuals cycled across Sri Lanka to raise funds for ICT. 

All the individuals who participated were astounded by how well organised the local team was and how smoothly everything ran for the first charity challenge in Sri Lanka! The participants all felt so lucky to be able to discover the North of the island, which until recently was closed to tourists because of the 20 year civil war. The party the participants had on Nilaveli Beach, to celebrate completing the almost 300 miles, was certainly one to remember!

Uniquely, during this trip, the team was able to visit some of the ICT’s projects in action, and meet with some of the children who will benefit from the funds raised.

ICT would like to thank Cycle Sri Lanka’s two key sponsors: Letterstone PLC and Phoenix PLC for making the event a great success! Lucozade and Nike also kept all the participants well hydrated and well dressed! For mobilising this sponsorship, ICT would like to acknowledge the efforts of certain individuals: Simon Hill, Peter Knight, Simon Percival, Hamid Raja, and Scott Haughton.
