I'm inspired by the work that Tearfund are doing in anti-human trafficking, so I wanted to raise money for them as part of my participation in The Tour of New Zealand.
I am cycling the South Island tour which will cover 700kms in 7 days. I am covering all the costs of my ride so your donation goes to the cause of fighting this abhorrent trade.
Please help me help Tearfund by giving whatever you can. You can support me by:
700Kms over 7 days will mean I am working very hard for every dollar you commit. Thank you in advance for your encouragement and generosity, it means a lot!

Every time you purchase fair trade products from Loyal, you are awarded the profit by way of Loyal dollars. The value of Loyal dollars earned are clearly displayed for each product alongside the buy price. To keep things simple and transparent, one NZ$ = one Loyal dollar.
Customers accrue their Loyal dollars and can spend them on gifts and projects run by the charity organisations registered with Loyal.
At Loyal we encourage our members to form groups to pool their Loyal dollars. It's more fun, and the Loyal dollars quickly accumulate ready for redemption. Loyal groups can elect to have their group configured as Published or remain private.
When you have earned enough Loyal dollars, you can redeem them on gifts and projects run by the Loyal charity partners. Gifts include:
Blue Light Trust is a youth charity which has worked in partnership with the New Zealand police & community for over 30 years with the aim of preventing young people becoming a victim or perpetrator of crime.
