Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On 3rd September 2017 I am going to attempt a 96 mile cycle ride around North Wales which incorporates 9280 feet of climbing, any money raised will be dontated to a "Comfort" fund of a Residential Home known as Chirk Court Residential Home, Chirk, Wrexham.
Chirk Court is a specialist dementia care home where my wife Margaret has been a resident since October 2016, she has received the highest level of care any loved one could hope for, this care being delivered with dignity, care and compassion, words would be inadequate to express the gratitude, we as family feel knowing our loved one is receiving a level of care which is second to none.
My intention is to raise as much money for the seperate comfort fund which goes towards providing extras for the residents over and above the standard care package, which helps to improve and enrich their lives and hopefully give back to those who so freely, in the past gave to us.

I completed the ride on Sunday 3rd September in what turned out to be atrocious conditions, the low temperature combined with driving rain, strong winds and various mechanical issues made it a very challenging ride, the final mileage was 108 with 11200 feet of ascent, my thanks in particular have to go to 3 lads from Wrexham Roads Club, Roger, Colin and Ian, who sheltered me from the dreadful conditions at altitude and encouraged me on the numerous climbs, thereby helping me through some bad patches, I am grateful to all who have donated,
