Welcome to our Club
We are based in the ancient Scottish capital of Perth. History is perhaps neither our raison d'être nor strength but it does provide us with a sense of belonging. We feel that we are a part of Perth and we support many activities within the city and the local area. In true Scottish tradition, some of these activities embrace the world.
President Brian Johnson Charity Cycle
Our club President, Brian Johnson, is undertaking a charity cycle through a stretch of Africa in Zambia in aid of a great charity - Lend With Care (https://lendwithcare.org/). In Brian's own words:
"On April 30th 2022, all being well I will set off for Lusaka in Zambia to raise funds and bring awareness of Lendwithcare, a fantastic charity that helps people in poorer parts of the world work their way out of poverty with their dignities intact.
I have cycled a total of 25 miles in 2021 so you can see it is a real challenge for me to cycle 400km through a mix of rough terrain and paved roads in the heat of Africa, while sleeping at nights in a tent. I will also visit some of the communities helped by Lendwithcare and see for myself the difference people supporting this charity make.
The effects of drought, climate change and poverty in places that Lendwithcare support don't often make the news , but I have seen on previous trips the difference a little help can make to individuals, families and communities.
I am funding all my own costs, all money given here will go directly to the charity."
