£1,985raised of £500 target by 35 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,985 to help those in the British Virgin Islands affected by Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history.

    Monmouth, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 14th October 2017

    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.


    Hurricane Irma, the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane in recorded history, has passed through the British Virgin Islands, the Caribbean and onto the US, leaving behind a trail of devastation. We are only just beginning to understand the extent of the devastation caused. We have a personal connection to the Island of Tortola as Mr Parsons’ mother and step-father made the decision to emigrate to Tortola at the beginning of 2017 and his brother has been a resident on the island for the past five years. Fortunately, his family survived the onslaught although their property has been demolished but it has meant that we have had a very personal account of the horrific experience of the disaster.

    Augusta House are undertaking a swimathon with the target of reaching 55.7km (2,228 lengths), the surface area of Tortola, the biggest island in the BVI. All monies will be donated to Virgin Unite’s BVI Community Support Appeal. Virgin Unite, Unite BVI and Virgin Limited Edition will work together with local organisations to identify the ongoing needs of affected individuals, families and communities impacted by this disaster. They will support the efforts on the ground and provide assistance as those affected start to recover. We need to raise as much money as possible to help those in urgent need. If you would like to support this fundraising effort then please donate. Thank you!

        Congrats on the fab swim Sam and the fellow HMSG girls. Our thoughts are with Tortola and the rest of the BVI. Lots of love to Gill, Rob and Tim too. x
