Cally Gedge Interview on Mijas Television


Cycle Sahara

Dental mavericks

Dental Maverick and a driving force behind the charity, Cally Gedge, planned a trip to cycle 150 miles in some of the most brutal conditions on the planet, namely, the Moroccan Sahara. Included in the week long cycle was a cycling decent from the stunning High Atlas mountains that form the Northern border of the Sahara desert.

A party of ten cyclists responded to the challenge and came together in early May in Marrakech, Morocco, with their Berber guides and mountain biking equipment. Not an expert cyclist among them, the team quickly realised they were in for quite a week as the itinerary became clear.

The team in the Sahara

The Cycle Sahara Team: Nigel Kennedy (Village Dental), Domien Doms, Gill Fisher (Castle Park Dental), Richard Howarth (Smile Style Dental), Pam Burkitt, Tony Gedge, Maria Kennedy (Village Dental), Michael Oliver (Olivers Dental) and Cally Gedge

What did we achieve? 

We are delighted to have raised over £6,000 for the charity with the help of your kind and much appreciated support. Every penny of this significant total goes to the care of Moroccan village children.
