Malawi Cycling Team - Glasgow Commonwealth Games

A new link between Scotland and Malawi was forged this week.

Leonard Tsoyo and Missi Kathumba came to Glasgow from Malawi to compete in the 2014 Commonwealth Games. They took their bikes into a local independent shop; Billy Bilsland Cycles, for repairs. The staff had a look, then with true Scottish generosity provided them with professional quality cycles to use for the time-trial instead. In further support for Malawi, the bike shop has suggested that people who have heard about the story and want to do something could make donations to the Scotland Malawi Partnership, of which SMMHEP is a member.
