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.
Morrello's Marvels Paracycling Club was established by a group of like-minded, determined individuals with a desire to go cycling with their friends and family and show the world that a disability is no barrier to participating in sport. We chose cycling as our preferred activity as it's healthy, sociable and fun and open to all ages and abilities. Our little club is also affiliated to British Cycling.
Each year we welcome new members which means we continually strive to offer the required levels of adapted cycling equipment to meet their needs. Such equipment is often bespoke and can present additional costs over and above that of a standard bike. The type of equipment that suits each paracyclist is determined by experiencing the various types of bikes and trikes available at our Club training sessions and on our practice rides throughout the year. To date, our Club can offer two adapted tandems, one standard tandem, two handcycles and one recumbent ICE trike.
We now seek your amazing generosity to help us fund the purchase of another recumbent trike to add to our Club's offerings so that we can get more of our paracyclists trying out this specialist equipment both indoors on bike trainers at our training sessions and out and about on Club practice rides.
In addition,a number of our Club's members have been diagnosed with cancer this year. To acknowledge their spirited journey back to good health we would like to give 50% of any funds raised to a cancer charity of our Club members' choice.
We thank you in advance for your support.
