York to Turkey Cycle

One of our York fundraisers, Laura Ricketts, cycled a staggering 2,000 miles for the Karen people raising over £2,000.

Laura, despite having just recovered from a broken ankle took on her biggest adventure yet, cycling all the way from York to Istanbul in just two months to raise vaulable funds for KHT.

 "I have chosen to fundraise for the Karen Hilltribes Trust because I am deeply passionate about the global inequalities in our world. It is a small, York-based charity working effectively to change this."

Over the 2,000 miles Laura took on collosal heights, escaped wild dogs, learnt the hospitality of strangers and even battled illness, ensuring she smashed her fundraising target of £1 per mile and had the adventure of a lifetime.
