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.


5 months from today I’m taking on a challenge of a life time and taking part in the longest and toughest horse race in the world.The race is 1000 km over the Mongolian Steppes which i will do on 25 semi wild Mongolian ponies.

I have to navigate my own way and camp with the nomads.The race will take 7-10 days.

To take part I need to raise a minimum of £13,000.This goes towards my entry fee, insurances,flights, veterinary team and the charity Cool Earth. The race provides much needed income to up to 700 nomads as well who provide the ponies and accomodation.

Please support me in this challenge of a life time. Every little but of support will truely be appreciated and I promise to do my best out there!
