Weʼre raising £500 to Help and feed those experiencing food poverty across the Bassetlaw district.
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.
Bassetlaw food bank first opened its doors in 2012 to help those within OUR community experiencing food poverty. Since this time the project has seen the demand trajectory increase year on year. The project receives no formal funding and is solely reliant on the good will of the community across the Bassetlaw district.
To put this Into context, in 2018 the project fed circa 2898 vulnerable people across OUR district including adults and children. Who otherwise would have starved without this lifeline. This isn't a melodramatic statement, it is fact.
Keeping up with demand is constantly outstripping resources . And like many food banks we are constantly running low on all resources.
Last year I undertook the Coast 4 the Community Challenge in order to raise much needed funds to feed those in need for whatever reason. The event saw me ride solo to Skegness in one hit on a mountain bike in order to raise funds and awareness to the plight of many. This was a distance of 84 miles, riding inclines in excess of 10%. The event raised £1034.50, which went straight into the mouths of those in need. This was only through the generosity of the local community and those who supported me in this endeavour.
This year will see me doing something similar riding for longer and harder to raise money to help those in need. Why! because it is morally the right thing to do.
On May 11, 2019 I will push peddle to floor and head for Whitby in North Yorkshire. A distance in excess of 100 miles of challenging terrain. This is a solo exploit and I anticipate will see me in the saddle for around 9 hours.
Please if you can spare some money, no matter how small it is, the donation will benefit someone in need within OUR community. Thank you in advance
