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

I am a homeless, ex-military man planning the canoe from San Malo, France to the Black Sea via the waterways of Europe and return by way of the Mediterranean to southern France and then to San Malo via French Waterways. A total journey of 12000km and a time of 8 - 9 mths. The aim of this trip is to raise donations for the Sue Ryder Charity, who helped my late Brother with his fight with cancer and the Royal British Legion, as I'm ex-military via sponsorship for the trip. However, the distance and time period requires meticulous pre-planning and considerable funding for equipment and food. Your support with this funding would be greatly appreciated.

The actual canoe trip is a lone venture, hence the meticulous pre-planning and this is being undertaken by a small, volunteer admin team to whom I am very grateful

    Just taken delivery of this 17ft monster. By the specs it meets all my requirements, great payload, draws very little water and its revolutionary hull design, materials and finish will be quite spritely through the water. River and open water trials on the near future

Hi, a little about me. I'm a 49 year old ex-serviceman, curently homeless and unable to find full time employment. With time hanging heavy on my hands I thought 'what can I do that be useful, not for me but for others'. I've settled on this trip with sponsorship for charity.
