Metal Hammer Magazine‘s Editor-In-Chief, Alexander Milas has tweeted about his upcoming cycling trip to Cambodia to raise money for children. The tweet was as follows:
“In a week I’ll be on my way to Cambodia raising money for kids. Please help, and help spread the word. It’s metal.”
The story behind Alexander’s cycling trip is on his JustGiving page:
“A few years ago Rod Smallwood asked whether I had the guts to take on a ride through the desert for a good cause or three. It was the Truants Morocco ride to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins, and Childline. It gave me a cycling bug I just haven’t been able to shake, and this January we’ll be back at it to benefit kids facing cancer, kids who need a lifeline, and kids who can benefit from music therapy, and believe me the results are breathtaking.
This time we’re hoping to bring the grand total of money earned over the years to over a million pounds, and we’re asking for your help. The costs of my trip are covered with the generous support of my company TeamRock, so your donation will go straight to the charities who need it most. No amount is too small (or too large!) but if you’ve money to spare, I guarantee it’ll be very gratefully received. Thanks very much!”
Nordoff Robins UK uses music to transform the lives of vulnerable people across the UK with a range of challenges such as autism, dementia, mental health problems, brain injury, depression or a life-threatening / terminal illness. The money raised will go to Nordoff Robins, who account and share out the funds between the three charities.
The trip starts on the 24th January and the team will be cycling over 100 miles during 3 days.
We wish Alexander and the rest of the team the best of luck!
