Eric Knopp took part in a cycling challenge across Chile:
"Cycling in Chile was a fantastic experience, covering over 750 miles around Lake Llanquihue with the Osorno Volcano as a gorgeous backdrop. The best part of the trip was a visit to a school in Santiago which has a computer lab filled with computers donated by Computer Aid. The students really loved learning there. I also raised nearly £5000 and have signed up to the next trip!"
