A cyclist is making a global donation all in the name of a worthy cause this year.

Mal McClelland of Peakhurst is supporting Hands Across the Water, an Australian, New Zealand and Thai charity that gives at-risk Thai children and their communities a helping hand.

In January 2017, Mr McClelland will join other riders in an eight day cycle of 800 kilometres across Thailand.

Money raised will go toward a home that houses children with HIV.

Each rider has pledged to raise a minimum of $10,000.

Mr McClelland will donate one per cent of the sale of his house to the cause.

“This is the second ride I will have done as well as spending a week at one of the homes in November 2015 assisting with renovations,” Mr McClelland said.
