raised of £50,000 target by 12 supporters

    Weʼve raised £770 to help George Heming sail round the world in the Clipper Race 2019 knowing he has helped clear the oceans of 100 Tons of Plastic.

    Funded on Thursday, 26th July 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    My name is George Heming and I'm 18 years old.

    I was accepted onto the Clipper Race ( back in September which was a huge moment for me as I have been wanting to sail round the world for many years, after growing up on the water, sailing in the UK every summer.

    The Clipper Race is the biggest round-the-world ocean race, and is also regarded as one of the toughest endurance challenges on the planet.  It’s going to be a huge mental and physical challenge for me to undertake but I am determined to succeed. I will be sailing over 40,000 nautical miles, visiting 13 countries, sailing across the toughest oceans that not many people venture to.

    During my life I have been noticing the way beaches have increasingly being filled with litter, especially plastic. So when I knew I was accepted onto the race I wanted to go one step further and set up a campaign where I would be collecting plastic. That’s when 100 Tons of Plastic was born.

    My goal is to sail round the world in the 2019 Clipper Race knowing that I have helped clear the oceans of 100 Tons of Plastic.

    I need to raise £50,000 in total to be able to sail round the world and keep 100 Tons of Plastic going. With your help, this can become a reality.

    Thank you, George x
