LCS undergraduate raises over £10,000 for humanitarian project

Adam Abdalla (Level 1 Arabic and Politics) cycled from Leeds to Amsterdam to raise awareness and funds for amputees, injured children and civilians in Gaza.

Adam's cycling journey began on 10 June 2018 at the steps of the Parkinson Building, University of Leeds. Eight days and six hundred miles later, he arrived in Amsterdam.

If this wasn't exciting enough, Adam also met with rock legend Roger Waters (Pink Floyd), and while attending his concert, was invited by Roger on to the stage where he praised Adam's amazing efforts - and made a very generous donation to the cause.

Well done, Adam - what a wonderful and inspirational achievement.
