”Cross a Mile n’ Bring a Smile”
Wayne’s campaign to raise money to build a new orphanage in Nouadhibou, Africa.
When the contract ended in 2012 I was invited to stay on with the company as the health and safety manager of the exploration department,health and safety superintendent. Whilst there I was invited to visit an orphanage in Nouadhibou. Being completely heart broken at the conditions they were living in I organised a 24 hour bike ride. Initially it was going to be between Nouadhibou and Noaukchott but we were told that it was too much of a kidnap threat so I arranged 24 people to each ride for 1 hour throughout the 24 hour period. Cross a Mile n’ bring a smile was a complete success and enough was raised to build a completely new, furnished orphanage.
