    Weʼve raised £3,850 to A Mental Ride

    Funded on Friday, 5th July 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Hi ,

    We have decided to take on a great challenge and cycle Land’s End to John O’Groats (1200 miles).

    Our inspiration for this journey is our incredible friend Andy. This was a ride that Andy often spoke about and wanted to do. His light hearted jokes made us feel like the epic distance could be conquered in a weekend.

    Andy was very dear to us and we lost him unexpectedly. Andy took his own life in August 2018. None of us knew he was struggling. We are commencing this journey in his honour. We want to start a conversation around suicide and mental health, a conversation that we still find difficult. Suicide cannot be the leading cause of young male death in the UK any more.

    We would like to raise money for CALM and Bristol Mind. Any donations, whatever size, will fund the amazing work they do and make a huge change to someone’s life.

    Lorna, Tess, Dan

      Enormous thanks to the incredible 162 of you who supported us along the way, your donations spurred us on and made the amazing journey worthwhile. Although he wasn't there in person, Andy was definitely there in spirit and we toasted to Andy every night. We are so amazed that we have raised over triple the target we set out to raise- thank you for your generosity! CALM and Bristol Mind are hugely appreciative of all the donations you made, it makes a massive difference to the work they do. Best wishes for a lovely summer :) Lorna, Dan, Tess

      THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the generous donations so far, we are over half way to our target which is amazing! 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️With only 7 weeks to go, I think it's fair to say we are excited and terrified in equal measure... But what a tribute, what an adventure and what a fantastic cause to be behind.

    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.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
