£120raised of £400 target by 4 supporters

Weʼre raising £400 to build a barn for community Farm Project in Romania. I am doing a 100-mile Coast-Coast cycle from Ilfracombe to Plymouth! On May 19th!!

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

Please sponsor me for the 100 mile, Coast to Coast, 'Barnstorming' Cycle Challenge.

This is a fundraising event for a specific project in Transylvania, Romania. The project is supporting hundreds of families who are living in ghetto conditions on the edges of society in the Reghin area. Crowded houses, food shortages, low employment rates and poor health are the norm.

Led by the Church Paster Atilla and his wife Adele they organize an Association [Charity] to support and transform these areas, in partnership with UK charity People Against Poverty.

Educational is a key focus with a Kindergarten, After School Clubs and a Mentor Programme. They are building a family home for the orphans. They are also initiating a farm project to support their work with money, food and jobs.

This fundraising will support the Farm Project and help the work to become self sustaining. The money will buy the materials for a large Barn which our UK Teams will build on a voluntary basis. All the money raised will support the Farm Project.

I'll be going out to help build the barn in September this year, the last phase of build which should see the structure of the barn completed!

Thank you for your support!

    And then last Friday I did 44 miles, from Bathampton to Warmley & back twice (!). Currently still training on my ancient mountain bike.

    So, last Monday I did 29 miles, starting at Monkton Combe, through 2 tunnels then onto Bristol-Bath cycle path, to Warmley - quite appropriate with the fantastic BH weather! :-) Then back to Bath, with breather & ice cream at my favourite canalside tea shack, then back to Monkton via Bathampton & Dundas.

    Today I did 2 tunnels, about 18.5 miles, with climb up winsley hill to finish. Huge temperature difference in the tunnels, blazing sunshine & heat outside, cold & drippy inside, was glad I took sweatshirt! Always nice to be serenaded by the tasteful music as you go along :-)
