Martin Press Hey everyone!
Thank you for taking the time to visit the site and check out all the incredible work the team at HATW do for our wonderful friends in Thailand.

In a short space of time Hands Across the Water has grown to support over 350 children living in 7 homes and projects all over Thailand. The charity initially started out addressing the needs of children who didn't have homes or basic essentials such as food, clothing and medicine. As they have grown and matured, the focus has shifted to helping with education and supporting them finding future employment.

HATW have achieved so much yet can do so much more with just a little help from yourselves!
Your donation will help provide a high standard of care, a chance at a better education and a future that they wouldn't have ever envisioned.

100% OF YOUR DONATION will go straight to the children and their communities in Thailand with not one penny spent on administration or marketing!

So, why did I sign up?
In 2012 I traveled through Northern Thailand for a couple of months, I found the scenery breath taking, the food delicious, the culture fascinating but more importantly the people to be some of the kindest, funniest but also cheekiest people I'd ever come across! I left with such a strong connection that I knew one day I'd have to come back.

As 2019 drew to a close and I thought about what I wanted to achieve the following year I decided on educating myself further, setting a personal fitness goal and doing more for others. It was around this time I was introduced to HATW and their charitable bike ride. Not only can I achieve my own personal goals but as I do so others can benefit from me doing so too.

SO..Please help me raise money to support the ongoing work of Hands Across the Water, every child deserves to live a life of choice. I promise I will not let you down, I will literally drag my bike across that finish line if I have too!
