What is crowdfunding?

I am doing a 100km sponsored bike ride!

I am going on a World Challenge Expedition to China for a month in 2019. I will trek in the Chinese mountains for eight days, and then I will live and work in a poor, rural farmland community to help with a project to help purify their extremely polluted water, and to push for organic farming. Part of the challenge is to raise £4850 for the trip and I will be doing this by offering to do jobs for residents of my village and by hosting an evening of Big Band music at our local Heritage Railway on Saturday 21st April. I have already raised over £1,000 by doing jobs like dog sitting, cat feeding, leaflet delivery and car washing.

I have set up this page because I am also going to do a 100km sponsored bike ride and I am hoping to raise some sponsorship through this Just Giving page!

    I have now raised just over £4,000 in total mainly from jobs around the village, but a big chunk from the Big Band night. Thank you to everyone who either bought tickets, sponsored me and who has given me work!

In the summer of 2019 I am going on a world challenge expedition to China and I need to raise £4850 to pay for it. I am going on a 100km sponsored bike ride with my dad (and some friends with bikes) to help me reach my target!
