    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 charity.

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

    Story

    9 times IOM TT winner Charlie Williams and myself are raising money, doing the one thing we both know and love… Riding bikes. We aim to raise £5000 and will be splitting the funds between two charities. We're riding from Lands End to John O'Groats on two very old Rudge motorcycles, just shy of 1000 miles!
    Every little helps towards our goal, and we both thank you for your donations!
    We are fundraising for two separate charities, please see the details below:
    TT Riders Association, who aim to support TT riders and their families during times of real hardship. This could be due to illness, injury or a variety of reasons, the TTRA will support them as much as is possible for as long as is needed, and help the sport we all love continue. The race stars may have all the support they need but the penniless privateers may spend their annual salary just to compete, leaving very little funds to cater for insurance, and sadly when things go wrong this can leave the families in truly unfortunate circumstances.
    Classrooms In The Clouds, who build community led schools in rural Nepal and support the employment and professional development of teachers. Unfortunately, many children live miles from the nearest school and are unable to receive any form of education at all. CITC build schools all over rural Nepal, bringing education to those young people. In 2018 I will be visiting Nepal to help build a community classroom, all the money fundraised on this page will be spent helping the local community with supplies or training.
    As Just Giving only support UK registered charities, I have set this up as a crowd funding page, allowing us to fund-raise for TTRA who are registered in the IOM.
