    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

    I've signed up for the Round-the-Island cycle ride on 30th April 2017. It's 100 kilometres (about 62 miles) with some serious hills, and I have a maximum of 9 hours to do it.

    It's all about sending 15 year old T to Vietnam this July, where as well as some R&R time, he'll be taking part in projects aimed at benefitting the local community - he may be helping them learn English, doing play therapy with younger ones, or helping to build a new school building.

    The bike ride I'm doing is the Isle of Wight Randonee - see
    http://www.cycleisland.co.uk/index.php to find out what it's all about! It's about double the distance of the longest training ride I've done so far and with some pretty extreme hills. Nearer the time I'll post on this page a link to a website where you can track my efforts - thanks to the South West Hampshire RAYNET Group for the loan of radio equipment to make that possible!

    We hope you'll feel able to make a contribution towards our total, but we do understand that in these current times no-one can contribute to all the good causes that they'd like to support. Either way thank you for reading this far and feel free to leave messages of support and encouragement.

      Thanks also to Steve M and my mum, who also don't have JG accounts but have supported us with a cash donation :-) The ride organisers have told us that with the Cowes floating bridge out of action this weekend, a diversion has made the route four miles further, so now it's 70 miles. Oh joy!

      Thank you to Joan, Jane and John, and Mr Robinson who have all pledged to contribute directly as they dont have JustGiving accounts, between them they take us £100 nearer to our target!

      Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Check out the picture at the top of the page - if you're not impressed by me cycling 66 miles, surely being brave enough to wear those leggings in public is worth something?
