£140raised of £2,000 target by 7 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to build a bike shed. On the 30th March 2019, SAMARITANS RIDERS will be cycling from Leicester to Whitby, 183 miles journey for a good cause.

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.


It is well known that for children to thrive mentally and physically they need to exercise: yet of the 8.3 million children who go to school daily only about 2% use their bicycles or scooters. This is a missed opportunity to exercise with a purpose. It costs nothing and might well save you a car journey!
No doubt there are reasons why children do not cycle to school but one is a lack of dedicated, secure and dry storage space. Of course children and parents object to the idea of riding home on a wet cycle that has been resting chained to a fence perhaps on the edge of a wet playing field. At Merrydale infant’s school that is exactly what pupils have to do. Merrydale does not have a bike shed.
The school is a fantastic family community with a number of bike-loving children but the lack of a bike shed must discourage everyone from using bikes. I hope you agree with what I am saying and will consider helping to raise money to have a bike shed put in place.
Please donate what you can to help build a bike shed for your children’s use. Your generosity will encourage cycling and so be of benefit now and into the future.
Thank you. Donations can be made ....

    Come on boys, you can make it. At least it's just 183 miles the spirit of the merrydale shall push and the pupils will be pleased when it's all done.
