Where is my money going & how can I fundraise?

Your “registration fee” is treated as a donation. The Cork Harbour Cycle is our biggest annual fundraiser so we encourage people to fundraise as much as possible. Once you have registered you will receive an email for activating an optional personalised fundraising page that you can share with friends and family. If you would like this, click ACTIVATE in your email and we will notify you once it is active. Any more questions with these please do not hesitate to email africadirect@gmail.com

Africa Direct is a totally voluntary run organisation.. no paid staff…with very few over heads, meaning over 90% of funds raised will be going directly to our African partners to support them to alleviate poverty in Africa. You can find out more about our partners and their work HERE
