The Grey Cycle Tour aims to raise funds for Touch Africa. Touch Africa is a registered Section 21 (2007/024885/08) and NPO (75773) organization in South Africa. It is also a registered UK Charity, “School Aid 4 Africa” trading as Touch Africa (1137365).

The mission of the charity is to restore the dignity of children by “making school a better place”. This is achieved by rehabilitating schools and initiating self-sustaining projects. Touch Africa is committed to social Entrepreneurship and ensuring that the youth of South Africa have the opportunity to receive an education, which will allow them to become economically viable.

We are planning a 1000km cycle tour that will take a team of 16 cyclists from Grey High School in Port Elizabeth to the Western Cape, returning along the Garden Route. The route will include Montagu, Barrydale, Oudtshoorn, George, Plettenberg Bay, Storms River and Jeffrey’s Bay.

We feel that this tour is an excellent opportunity for young people, as well as members of the tourism industry, to join forces and to make a positive contribution to addressing critical problems in our community.
