    Story

    To put the wheels in motion on this brand new venture, two of the team (Josh and Brad) are planning to cycle from Calais to Kochanow in Poland, which is approximately 786 miles, travelling through France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, over approximately 12 days. We know this is not going to be an easy or comfortable ride but we are excited to get on the saddle. Brad and Josh will be setting off on the 31st of August with the intention to arrive at Kochanow for the 6th of September, the arrival date may change depending on how much sightseeing takes place along the way! There will be a fair amount of uphill climbing throughout eastern Germany into western Poland and you will be able to keep up with how much pain we are in along the way on our Facebook page and Instagram profiles. Though we are young and "fit" the training is well under way to prepare for the adventure ahead! If we could raise £6 /7 per mile traveled, we will hit our target!

    Once we have hit this target the money will be used to finance the equipment required to run summer youth camps, tents sleeping bags, sports and catering equipment etc.

    Through connections made over the years travelling to Poland we already have a free to use site to host the camps, what we now need is fund raising for the equipment mentioned above.

    Once equipped our aim is to provide a free week of activities and getaway for the young people in the area of south west Poland for at least one week a year.

    Through many trips to Poland we have seen the affect of the school holidays and having nothing to do and nowhere to go throughout the summer, sadly this often results in substance abuse. We firmly believe, given an alternative we can affect the lives of the younger generations for good.

    Our aim is to be ready to start our first week in the summer of 2018.

    Thank you for your support in making this happen!

      Hi all just an update to firstly say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated, secondly our leaving date has shifted to the 31st of August instead of the 27th. Not only will this help keep the cost of the ferry trip down as it is midweek it will also help us to avoid to bank holiday traffic. We are also hoping to take a trip to the reading music festival after it has finished to see if we can collect up some of the tents and equipment that will inevitably be left behind! Your genrousity continues to amaze us, please keep sharing!
