Would you cross a tree trunk over a river to access critical resources like health care, education, and employment? Sadly, many people living in rural locations in Uganda do not have a choice. That’s why we are sending a team of 10 Engineers from Tony Gee and Knights Brown, in partnership with Bridges to Prosperity, out to Uganda to construct a suspended bridge that will provide a vital connection between communities. Bridges to Prosperity are a non-profit organisation that envisage a world where poverty caused by rural isolation no longer exists. Last year, the B2P industry partners built 20 bridges that serve over 50,000 community members. In building those 20 bridges, the organisation has now reached over one million people. Over one million people have access to opportunities they can count on. With just one bridge we can leverage local talent and resources to strengthen the impact of all services being provided to a rural community. We are looking to raise £15,000 to cover materials, tools, labour, flights and accommodation. We would massively appreciate any contribution you can make towards the project. Thank you and please help us spread the word! :)

10 volunteers from Knights Brown and Tony Gee are travelling to Uganda in August to construct a footbridge, serving a community of 4,000. The team members are: Abbie Dutton Chris Thurlow Elaine Watford Joseph Palmer Jack Reville Jonathan May Matt Gorvett Matthew Spiller Shermein Wong Stephanie Younes Our group fundraising activities include walking across 30 bridges in London and hiking the Yorkshire 3 peaks. We will also be carrying out individual and smaller group activities such as completing a 5k Tough Mudder challenge, marathons, BBQ's with various games, football games, lottery, and many more. We will fly out to Uganda for two weeks in August to construct the bridge alongside B2P staff and most importantly volunteers from the local community. We will help manage the project from start to finish, prepare construction plans, organise logistics of the construction and the trip and provide vital health and safety talks to all involved in the build. Donate today and become a member of the team because without you, none of this would be possible. Keep an eye out for our updates whilst we are out there and watch the project develop.
