Dunstan Thomas takes part in the 2nd Gorilla Sprint to raise money for Singing Gorilla Projects

12 September 2018

On Friday 7th September, Dunstan Thomas participated in the second Gorilla Sprint, an event designed to raise money for Singing Gorilla Projects (SGP) . SGP funds and manages community based projects in remote parts of Uganda that improve the welfare of communities and enriches the lives of individuals. These community projects range from building a music school, the installation of 3000 litre water tanks and the construction of a health centre. More information about current projects can be found here.

This year, the event consisted of either a 22- or 29-mile bike ride, depending on the choice of the competitor. The teams set off at 2pm from Gunwharf Quays, cycling along the seafront, out of Portsmouth and along to Hayling Island. After a break at the Ferryboat inn, the participants crossed the water on the Pride of Hayling ferry, and then cycled back to Gunwharf into a very strong headwind. In total the cycle took around three hours, including a break for a well-deserved drink in the middle.

Most importantly, was the money raised for Singing Gorilla Projects. The event was raising funds for an ambulance in Uganda, further assisting with medical capabilities in the local area. Dunstan Thomas raised over £1,000 towards this.
