Charity Motorcycle holidays

There has been a great upsurge in fund raising holidays over the last few years and there are plenty of motorcycling ones to choose from these days.  This type of holiday started about twenty years ago when someone had the bright idea of combining a trip which was challenging and different and asking the participants to raise money for charity as well - double the challenge but double the achievement at the end.  Some holidays now ask you to pay a registration fee, part of which goes to charity, and/or then raise sponsorship for either a specific charity or one of your choice. This has provided a boost for smaller charities which struggle with funding and means that participants going on these holidays can support a charity which means something to them personally. If you don't have a specific charity in mind then you can have a look at what's already on offer and see if the challenge and the charity feels right for you - for example - the Enduro Africa holiday which raises money for four charities: Unicef, Sentebale, The Nelson Mandela Children's Fund and Touch Africa (see link below for more info).
