    Weʼve raised £2,000 to STELVIO FOR TT100

    Funded on Friday, 8th June 2018

    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.



    On the 18-01-18, one of my best friends was sadly taken when his Fishing Vessel, the “Nancy Glen” (TT100) capsized in a tragic accident just off the coast of my local village, “Tarbert” Loch Fyne. My lifelong friend, Duncan MacDougall (TT) and his fellow crew member Przemek Krawczyk are believed to be within the Vessel which heartbreakingly remains on the sea bed. Fortunately a third member of the Crew survived and is recovering from his ordeal. There has been an extremely successful campaign set up to raise funds to bring our boys home and I would like to support this campaign when I participate in the Granfondo Stelvio Santini, with all proceeds going to this particularly worthy cause and to support both Wives and their young families during this unbearably traumatic time and beyond.

    Granfondo Stelvio Santini takes place on 03-06-18 where I will attempt to set off from Bormio in Italy and complete the long Route of 151km with approximately 4058 metres /13314 feet of ascent (Ben Nevis x3), incorporating the brutal 17km Mortirolo Pass (1726m) which is considered one of the toughest and most challenging climbs in Europe and finishing atop the notorious 22km Passo Stelvio, the highest road pass in Italy at 2758m. As a keen cyclist, I will train 6 days a week over the next 4 months in order to do the crew of the Nancy Glen justice and raise further much needed funds.

    Any kind donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      Glad to report that the event went to plan. It was a hard challenge and managed to complete the Granfondo in 6:43:44, pretty decent I’m told (for a 50 year old 😂). Once again, I would like to thank every single one of you that has taken the time to kindly sponsor me and support the Families going forward. Again, my sincere thanks💙. Photo with finishers cap👍🏻

      First and foremost, thank you so much for every single penny you have kindly donated! I will never forget that you have taken the time to support me; it genuinely means a hell of a lot to me. I think the fitness is going well; I have now completed the first 50 blocks of training and up at 90 miles on the road on a Sunday and around 200 miles a week. My Cycling top has arrived and I will wear it with great pride on the day. Again, thank you all so much, I am totally humbled with the support you have all given me.
