WaterAid works in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region and campaigns globally to realise our vision of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. Richard Dixon, Tom Watts, Matthew Benfield, Andy Humpish and Kevin Moore embarked on a bike ride from Walney to Wear. On route ventured many challenges along with taking on Tan Hill which reaches at its peak 1,732 ft above sea level.
