Weʼre raising £500 to help fund a new Scout hut roof for 2nd Barnet Scouts

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

The reason for doing this is simple.

Peter and his team give so much of their own time and energy into teaching and inspiring our kids at 2nd Barnet Scouts and they deserve a watertight, safe Scout hut roof to do it under! If we can raise enough funds to replace the roof, then this will allow other vital improvements such as a new kitchen to progress.

My challenge is simple too.

Everyone who knows me, knows I love cycling. Until recently I’ve always travelled to work in London using a combination of my Brompton folding bike and the overground train. In the last couple of years though, I’ve acquired a road bike (now two!) - something I haven’t had since my teens. This was a initially a way to start cycling at the weekend purely for the joy of it, rather just commuting, but the road bike bug bit me again and I started to use the bike to commute as well, once or twice a week. Now it’s usually more often, with the rest of the week still using the trusty Brompton and the train.

So, starting on 1 October I will cycle to and from work - 11 hilly miles there and 11 even hillier miles back - every single working day for a month. Forty-six journeys ending on Halloween. The challenge is that if the weather’s rubbish, or I have a rotten cold, or my hips ache (a fairly regular occurrence) then I don’t have the luxury of bailing out and using the Brompton and the train!

I’ll be logging every ride on Strava - if you’re signed up you can follow my progress and keep tabs on me!

Hopefully you'll think this is enough of challenge and help me raise money for a brilliant cause!

    Flat tyre this morning before I even set off 🙄. Still, it was easier to change than the one in the dark on the way home on Monday night!
