Solidarity cycle-ride for the South African Miners

Send your pledges via cheque to "South African Miners Fund" c/o Lewisham NUT, Second Floor, Town Hall Chambers, Catford, London SE6 4RU.

As soon as term ends for me on Friday, July 19th, I'll be jumping on my old bike and heading for Belgium.

I'm hoping to successfully cycle the 150 miles from Dunkerque to Leuven and am seeking sponsorship in aid of the South African Miners' Solidarity Fund. 

This fund was set up by trade unionists in Britain to raise funds for the South African National Miners' Strike Committee, organising the ongoing struggles that first erupted after the Marikana massacre where 34 workers were killed by police. 

If you can help, please get in touch to offer sponsorship. Just a penny a mile will raise £1.50 - but higher mileage rates welcome !
