Tanya Pepin, director of TWC (The Whole Sale Company), has dusted down her bike, and will be joining industry executives from the Wholesale and Convenience Retail Channel on a 600km bike ride in Vietnam to lend her support and help raise funds for MAG (Mines Advisory Group).
As a former management consultant to the non-profit sector and a passionate advocate for effective charitable organisations Tanya says:
“To cycle 600km in six days will, no doubt, be a challenge but it’s a great cause and an opportunity to make a real difference. It is a little-known fact that Vietnam was one of the most heavily bombed countries ever and it is estimated that over 6 million unexploded bombs are still scattered over the countryside.
“Tragically over 104,000 people have been injured, or killed, by stepping on a mine since 1975 and MAG is a dedicated charity where over 90% of all funds go directly to making a difference on the front line”.
Over 30 industry executives will head to Vietnam on 8th February 2019 returning on the 17th.
