Weʼre raising £2,000 to help Chae Jenkins and his family with any costs regarding future treatments and support.

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Recently a very good friend of mine's brother Chae Jenkins was diagnosed with a tumour on the brain. Incurable. In a time of utter heartbreak, the family is doing amazing and all they can, I admire them all. I wanted to give something back to them as they feel like another family to me and are all amazing people. I would spend weekend upon weekend at theirs and feel it as a second home, the hospitality was too welcoming. Because of this and just the purest people that they are I want to raise some money to give as much as I can for Chae and his family.

My aim is to set off from John O'Groats in May half term 2021, and to cycle the 900 plus miles down the UK. Through Scotland, into England, along the border of Wales back into my home county of Cornwall and finish up at Land's End roughly 14 days from when I started. If all goes to plan I will be passing through Bude, the home town of Chae and I, hopefully being able to see the family. Covid permitting.

It is a long, long cycle and something far greater than I have ever done before. Certainly bigger than cycling over a few hills to check the surf on the weekends, but it wouldn't be called a challenge otherwise. I found this challenge talking to a family friend speaking about his travels, and this challenge managed to find its way into conversation. I thought what better time to do it than now where I have someone to do it for, giving the will power to do it.

I will be adding to the page regularly with a few training updates and eventually the actual event updates.

I would appreciate every donation made, as would Chae and his family

Thanks for reading
