As part of the new connection between Tokyo Cycling Club, and TELL - Tokyo English Lifeline, I went down to their office on Friday of last week to meet them.

They have a good setup down there, offering a variety of services in both English and Japanese, with quite a few staff and specialists working together.

We spoke generally about what they do, including about how they they fund themselves. Full information of this is available in the literature on their website, but to summarize, they operate with a system of sponsorship, connections, donations and auctions.

In terms of what Tokyo Cycling Club can do for them, they were happy that we now have a banner linking to their site, as one of the challenges they face is getting word of their services out there, and any extra publicity is a positive. They also expressed their gratitude for any of the future charitable events that may be planned through Tokyo Cycling Club and the associated groups / organisations.

There was also talk of a charitable running event, which they asked if any of the people here might be interested in. We had a bit of a giggle about asking serious cyclists to get off their bikes and go running, but that will certainly be something that can advertised on here when the time comes. At the very least, we can just send @leicaman to do the running for us, while we sit at home arguing about stems.

So, it was good to meet the people at TELL - Tokyo English Lifeline in person, and here's hoping for a fruitful relationship from this point on.

Thanks.
