    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

    As many of you will already be aware, our son John is passionate about farm work and the great outdoors (and cutting grass!). With his autism/epilepsy, it is difficult to find facilities where John can be appropriately supported whilst exploring a level of independence.

    Oak Farm is a facility for young adults with learning difficulties, combining practical activities with social events and fun.  John has been attending  Oak  Farm since 2015 and has thrived due to the dedication of the staff.  However  the facility is largely reliant on the goodwill of its employees and the local community. 

    With our newly found 'free time' we've decided that our trips to France and Spain need something more than wine and good food.  So, on the 14th September we'll be setting off on our tandem  bike, provisions stashed in paniers, pedalling it down from Azille (France ) to Torrox (Spain )more than 1200km., to raise money  for Oak Farm. We're hoping to complete the ride in about  three  weeks  but  whether we're still on the same tandem bike at the end of it is another matter. 

    Please be generous! 

    Mike and Susie x

      Finally, a very big Thank you to all our family and friends for your generosity and encouragement. It will be much appreciated by all at Oak Farm. I don't think Mark Beaumont has anything to worry about, can't see us cycling the planet!It has been challenging at times, but on the whole, an extremely rewarding experience. And at no point did we utter those famous words "Are we there yet?" Mike & Susie

      Estamos aqui!!!! Great relief (even the tandem breathed a sigh of relief) Very enjoyable ride down to sunny Torrox. Passed some beautiful shops, luckily for the credit cards, the paniers already look like they have been on steroids. A bit of a hiccup just before we arrived, when I got my foot caught in the toe clip when getting off-I won't say where the handlebar landed but it wasn't pleasant! . Looking forward to a celebratory meal tonight, which Mike thinks I've earned after staring at his bum for 2 weeks!
