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.


Big Sam Dawson and I are doing another charity cycle ride. This time from Gothenburg to London. Over 1,700km in 10 days of pure hell. Previously for the Monaco to London ride we raised all money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. This time we are splitting the fundraising between Great Ormond Street and the Joe Heraty Trust. The work GOSH does is simply amazing and doesn’t really need much introduction. As many of you know GOSH is at the centre of my family as my daughter is under constant care from them.

Joe Heraty, A dear friend to so many; departed this world far too early when he tragically took his own life after battling with mental health issues in silence. A loving father and husband and the most positive man I had the pleasure to call my friend. A selfless man that only ever wanted to help other people and only ever wearing a smile.

This cycle ride will hopefully help increase awareness for mental health and raise money that can help many more young men and women that are battling in silence with mental health issues. We will set off in May 2019 with the goal of arriving back in London Thursday 16th May to mark the 1 year Anniversary of Joes funeral.

Any donation over £1,000 we will add your name/company logo to our jersey and make sure there is a big following. I didn‘t get these teeth for my own benefit you know.

We appreciate that sponsorship demands are fairly regular these days so we have decided to make sure that the challenge is one that is as worthy as the causes we are supporting. I would like to thank you all in advance for all your time and generosity.

Big Sam and Yates xxxxx
