    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.

    Story

    The football club is looking to purchase pitch maintenance plant and equipment in order to improve the playing surfaces on offer to the children involved, due to the location of the club no lottery funding is available.

    In an attempt to raise funds on behalf of the under 9s team I intend to undertake a Coast to Coast bike ride in a day (well 12 hours ish hopefully to be exact). The intended route is known as the 'Way of the Roses' (National Cycle Network route 69) which runs from Morecambe on the North West coast to Bridlington on the North East coast a distance of around 175 miles. I will be doing the ride on Friday 22nd September starting at 07:00 and hopefully finishing by 19:00 before its dark :). To give you an idea of the challenge, I started riding a bike regularly for fitness during April 2015 and to date the farthest ride I have completed in one day is 102 mile. Details of the ride will be recorded via my Strava account at www.strava.com/athletes/9816516

      Set off from a sunny Morecambe on Friday 22nd Sept at 07:50 and arrived in Bridlington 165 miles later at 19:10. 9:45 pedalling and 1:35 refuelling in farm shops 😃🍰. No physical injuries sustained just teally tired the following day. Thanks to all my generous supporters who have managed to raise so far £560 all of which will go directly to help improve the facilities on offer to all of the children involved in the football club. 3 days left before my sponsorship page closes; https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/martin-nelson-1 👍⚽️🚴‍♂️😅

      Not long to go now!! Increase of mileage over last 7 weeks has gone well and have completed 4 100+ mile rides in last 4 weeks the latest being a 112 mile ride last Saturday which was horrendous due to constant rain (as you can see from the photo it was grim) and loads of punctures and tube changes, it's not nice spending 6 hours pedalling and over 2 hours repairing bike while constantly wet through and cold :( hoping for a lot better on Friday 🚴‍♂️🌞👍 Any final sponsorship amounts would be greatly appreciated - many thanks!!
