18 May 2010 Old Brightonian, Rupert Wilkinson (H. 2005-09) has just completed a 510K bike ride across South West France in aid of "African Promise", and to date has raised well over £1000.00 for this tiny charity, which aims to improve primary schools in Kenya.

Rupert spent four months working in various parts of Kenya from October 2009 until February this year, as a volunteer for 'African & Asia Venture'. Whilst building school classrooms in Kasigau he met the founder and ex 'AV', twenty-four year old Charles Coldman and saw, first hand, just how much Charles has improved the learning conditions of many young village children.
