Spring of hope (Ukraine)

£712 of £2,500 goal

Raised by 10 people in 39 months

The Mission
To cycle all the way along the Danube from Budapest to the Black Sea.

The Cause
Джерело Надії (Spring of Hope)


Spring of Hope is a small charity working in central Ukraine to help and support some of the most vulnerable and unsupported people in Europe - including thousands of families who have been displaced by the fighting in Ukraine. 


They don't have a shiny/professional website  and they don't have the resources that some large aid organisations have but they do have a huge amount to offer as they support those who are trying to cope with circumstances harder than most of us can ever imagine.

How it works 
Starting in Budapest in August, I will pedal my way through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania and finally back into Ukraine.

This won't be easy, the last time I slept in a tent was about 10 years ago and until December this year I didn't even own a bike!  So, cycling almost 2,000km over 30 days and fully loaded with food and equipment is probably going to kill me.

Your support will keep me going and if you donate even a small amount - you'll be doing a wonderful thing to help some amazing people. Keep giving and I'll keep pedalling...

Thanks (& please hit the donate button)
Ian 'Eddy' Bearder
