Clive Howlett with a distinguished career in education, is a member of the Talking Newspaper and a member of the Rotary Club of Macclesfield Castle.
He has accepted the challenge to cycle 500kms from Lusaka to Livingstone in Zambia next May 2020 at age 70, in aid of Lendwithcare, the charity both Clive and the Rotary Club of Macclesfield Castle are supporting.
Lendwithcare.org is a UK charity that supports small scale businesses throughout Asia, Africa and South America. Rotary provides help by supplying young entrepreneurs with loans to enable their business ideas to grow. They then pay back the loan over an agreed period. Once the loan is repaid it can be reused for another young business.
All the money Clive raises will be donated to Lendwithcare.org to enable them to continue offering this wonderful service as he is funding the trip himself.
Over the past four years Macclesfield Castle Rotary have provided 120 loans to help 508 entrepreneurs. Through these loans the Rotary Club have helped 1636 family members and created 378 new jobs. This has enabled children in remote villages to go to school; medical bills to be paid and lives changed. What is amazing is that in five years there are no defaults on the loans.
Lendwithcare say Make a loan. Change a life. Can you help Clive raise money for this fantastic charity by donating to his Just Giving Page?
