£180raised of £500 target by 10 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to Get the Bristol Bisons to the Inclusive + Gay Rugby European Championships!


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.


The Bristol Bisons are an IGR (Inclusive and Gay Rugby) team based (unsurprisingly) in Bristol, representing the South West. This year will will be attending the IGR European Championships in Dublin in June, and hope to send 2 teams. This is a sign of the exponential growth of the club, whose numbers were less than twenty 2 years ago. In order to achieve this we need to fund-raise about £20,000. So, in an effort to do my bit, I shall be attempting to row (on an indoor rowing machine) the distance between Bristol and Dublin (325 kilometres) in the month of March.

Why row? Because I'm old and liable to get injured and rowing is something that doesn't make my ongoing injuries worse! You will be able to follow my progress, and my distances will be logged and verified via the Concept 2 rowing logbook, meaning I cannot cheat! To put this into context the most I have managed in a month before is 91km.

All donations gratefully recieved on behalf on the Bisons, who you can follow on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

      Good luck mate – my money ends up in the pot either way so may as well give you some financial incentive!
