Come and support Vida Tennis Coaches Ashleigh Richardson and Blake Poyser at the Vida Tennis Charity Day 2018!
All money raised will be donated to Hands Across the Water – a foundation that supports at-risk & underprivileged kids and communities in Thailand. Hands Across The Water, was originally formed after countless Thai children were left alone and homeless by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami.
Blake and Ashleigh have decided to take on the mental and physical challenge of riding 500kms in 5 days in Thailand in April next year. They see this as a great opportunity to give back to kids in need and to learn & grow from what will be an exceptional experience of a lifetime. The Ride will include traveling through under-privileged communities and will finish by spending time and staying with the kids at the all-girls Orphanage. One hundred percent of all funds raised will go directly to these kids and the orphanage.
Over the coming months, we will also set up a follow our journey page and hope you can share in experience and support the charity ride.

About Hands Across the Water
Our charity, Hands Across The Water, was originally formed after countless Thai children were left alone and homeless by the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. Former police forensic specialist Peter Baines, working with the tsunami disaster victim identification team, was deeply touched by the number of children affected by the natural disaster and was inspired to establish an organisation that could make a real difference. In late 2005, a team of committed individuals with the desire to help others formed Hands Across The Water.
Our relationship with Business Blueprint & Hands Across the Water?
Vida has been a part of the education and mentoring program called Business Blueprint for 7 years now. The leadership training and support that our team has received from the knowledgeable mentors and trainers there have played a big part in the growth of our team, this included the founder of Hands, Peter Baines. Ashleigh has been attending workshops and been a member with them for 3 years now and this has been something she has wanted to do since watching the first video about it 3 years ago. Business Blueprint has now raised over $1,000,000 for Hands over previous years and we are thrilled to be part of the journey in 2019.
