2022 Car & Bike Rally.
Peak District 7th May.
We had a fantastic weekend exploring the rugged beauty of the Derbyshire Peak District for Adventure Ashrams 2022 Car & Bike Rally! Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this year's Rally and made it so special. It was wonderful to reconnect with old friends and supporters as well as to meet some new faces!
Drum roll please…. we are thrilled to announce that Adventure Ashram's 2022 UK Car & Bike Rally raised a FANTASTIC £15,200!
The funds raised will make such a difference to the communities in India that Adventure Ashram supports including helping to provide safe shelter for women and children affected by human trafficking and domestic violence and supporting the education of tribal children in South India. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support and generous donations.
We already can't wait for next year's Car & Bike Rally and to explore a new area of the UK together! Keep your eyes peeled for more details to be announced...
