Rosie & Jim are delighted to sponsor fundraiser in Asia for MAG (Mines Action Group) for the amount of €300.
Managing Director of Henderson Foodservice Cathal Geoghegan participated in a charity cycle event in Asia for MAG (Mines Action Group). Cathal joined a team of 35 sector leaders participating in a 400km cycle from Chaing Rai, Thailand to Luang Prabang in Laos.
Every day across the world 15 people are killed or injured by a landmine or unexploded bomb. Half of all civilian casualties are children. MAG teams work around the world to remove landmines and other deadly weapons, reducing the risk of death or injury and returning land to safe and productive use. MAG also provides risk education classes, so children and their families can stay as safe as possible until land is cleared. In 2023, the Thai-Laos Cycle Challenge will finish in Laos, which is the most heavily bombed county in the world per capita. The team has set themselves an equally challenging target of £170,000 which will make a life changing difference to people living with the daily threat of landmines and unexploded bombs.
Congratulations and well done to everyone who took part in this fantastic fundraiser!
