Leeds, UK. April 2013 - A recently released statement by the EcoKids textile project announced the sponsorship of Nishant Nishant to help him participate in the Leeds RAG Tour to France 2013 - a six day, 400 mile bike ride from Leeds to Paris. The purpose of the tour was to help raise money forLeeds Mind, which is charity that focuses on helping the mentally ill.

After the six day ride was complete, Nishant sent EcoKids a thank you letter, which stated, "Thank you so much for your support and best wishes in helping me get through the toughest week ever – cycling over 400 miles through rain, snow, hail and cross-winds that literally stopped us in our tracks. More importantly and thanks to your generous sponsorship, we managed to raise as a group nearly £15,000 for ‘Leeds Mind’ charity."

Project Coordinator for EcoKids, Samantha Jarvis, said that they were ecstatic about Nishant’s success; they were just proud to have contributed to it. However, that doesn’t mean that their job is finished:

"We still have a lot of work to do -- for Leeds Mind, and for every other charity -- before we can say our work is done. However, Nishant and the others who rode set a good example for all of us; if they are cycling 400 miles through every kind of weather imaginable, then we could be doing more as well,” explained the representative.

EcoKids encourages others to help Nishant raise money for Leeds Mind by donating to his page, located here: https://www.justgiving.com/Nishant-Nishant1/
