Trustee Jonathan Worsley reflects on cycling 500 miles in 5 days
10 intrepid cyclists from nine nationalities met in Amsterdam on 29 February with the goal of cycling to Berlin for two charities, The Anne Frank Trust and Future Talent. We were invited to the Anne Frank House for a private tour prior to leaving for Berlin for the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF). Cycling commenced and hail and rain challenged us along the canals to Utrecht. Fellow cyclists from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi not used to the cold weather of Northern Europe, carried on and we all became close friends as we struggled together. Passing through Germany we saw stunning landscape and five days later we arrived in Berlin for pictures at Brandenburg Gates and at the Holocaust Museum.
A memorable trip with plenty of laughter and sore bums we raised £20,000 for The Anne Frank Trust and Future Talent to help them to continue the good work for the youth of today changing lives through music and educating on the impact of racism in society.

Future Talent is very grateful to Jonathan and all the cyclists for raising such a fantastic amount for the Charity.
