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.


In June this year I plan to embark on my biggest challenge since breaking my back in 2012! I plan to solo cycle the 1000 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

I have booked a mere 11 days annual leave in order to complete this venture and am raising money for two causes close to my heart. The first is a charity for whom I used to work – Just Caring Midlands – who provide care and support for vulnerable young adults in Birmingham. The second is to fund a time of respite for my two severely autistic adult brothers – allowing them to have their first holiday in over a decade.

Compared to the big, nationwide charities, these causes do not attract as much funding, and rely on the generosity of patrons and sponsors in order to keep doing their vital work. Working for the emergency services in the local community, I know how important the work of Just Caring Midlands is, as well as the challenges facing councils in providing learning disability and mental health services. Any funding, however small, would help enormously.

I am excited to undertake this challenge both to see whether I can make it and to raise funds for these two most special causes. Any donations would be very much appreciated.

Thank you muchly

Hi. It's Liz here. I am embarking on a 1000 mile solo cycle from John O'Groats to Land's End to raise money for 2 causes very close to my heart. Firstly for a B'ham charity - Just Caring Midlands - and also to fund a time of respite for my severely autistic adult brothers :D
