The Armadale resident is cycling two hours a day to train for the Coast 2 Coast bike ride, which will see him journey from Fremantle to Bondi in March 2014.

Mr Wilkinson aims to raise $50,000, which will be used to assist disadvantaged communities in becoming self-sustainable.

Lend a Hand Foundation is seeking ideas from individuals and organisations for local or overseas community projects that require funding.

‘We have a lot that we take for granted and I believe we should share some of it around,’ Mr Wilkinson said.

The foundation has helped construct an education centre in Uganda, provided school supplies to an Indian orphanage and delivered 160 bikes to an Aboriginal community. To donate, visit www.lahf.net.
