Weʼre raising £5,000 to put towards a van for Experience Community CIC.
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.
Our friend Jack wanted to ride coast to coast on his handcycle along the Hadrian's Wall Cycle Route. Unfortunately, he passed away before he was able to complete his ambition. We've borrowed Jack's handcycle so that we can complete this challenge for him. Starting in Silloth on the west coast, four handcyclists, supported by four non-disabled riders will complete the 113 mile journey, arriving in Whitley Bay on the east coast two days later.
As part of this memorial ride we're launching our fundraising effort to raise the money we need for a new van for Experience Community CIC, an organisation that helps disabled people access the countryside. The van is essential to transport the equipment we use so that we can help more people benefit from our work across the north of England.
