Charity

The Round the World by Bike expedition and the Marathon des Sables were entirely self-financing; every penny raised in donations goes directly to Hope and Homes for Children to support their outstanding work. Alastair is still raising funds and awareness for HHC through many of his Public Speaking engagements.

He recently visited their projects in Sierra Leone. You can read Alastair’s policy on charity and pro bono speaking here.

“Alastair has been a dedicated supporter of Hope and Homes for Children for nearly a decade. During this time he has never ceased to amaze us with his determination and his ability to rise to any challenge, no matter how physically and mentally exhausting. Alastair sets the bar high for himself but never fails to surpass it.

His ‘can do’ approach, coupled with his tireless enthusiasm and innovativeness are just some of his many wonderful attributes. For someone to have completed just one of Alastair’s many exploits would be a spectacular achievement worthy of a lifetime of accolade. But Alastair just takes these in his stride and he is always looking for the next challenge to conquer. He is also an excellent motivational speaker who can appeal to all audiences.

Alastair truly is one of life’s inspirational people. His dynamism, integrity and professionalism make him an absolute pleasure to know and a joy to work with and I wholeheartedly recommend him as deserving of support.”
