Our very own Mango Tree trustee and friend Nic Merrett, looking tanned and super fit, last month completed the final leg of his mammoth 1200 mile bike ride over 34 days from Land’s End To John O’Groats. You can read up on his spectacular efforts through his blog by visiting http://www.cycle4mango.co.uk

With only a few days left to go we saw a surge in support for his efforts. In Nic’s final blog from the saddle he said, “My target was to attempt to raise £8644 to represent £1 for every orphan that the Mango Tree supports. Online and Offline donations and gift aid have tipped just past the £6000 mark and I hope to appeal to many to help complete this project and reach the target. The long term future of self reliance and success for the 8644 orphans is a real prospect and there is so much we can praise them for along the way - the future is bright, and all this would never be possible without your unfailing support over the years. God Bless."
