    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In December 2019, my colleague Paul Hopkins and I will be taking part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, one of the world’s toughest feats of endurance.

    We will be rowing 2,550 nautical miles, from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands, to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua and Barbuda.

    In the process, not only will we become the oldest team to take part – securing a place in the Guinness Book of World Records – but we’ll be raising money for two charities close to our hearts: Tiny Lives and The Fire Fighters’ Charity.

    We already have our boat – it was hand-built 15 years ago and has already made the Atlantic crossing three times.

    Will you help us make it a fourth?

    We are looking for a company to sponsor our journey and help us raise funds for our chosen charities. There are two ways you could help:

    • Our aim is to raise £30,000 for our charities. The sale of the boat after the race should raise £14,000 and we have already raised £7,000 ourselves. Could you help us by contributing the rest?

    • The entry fee and expenses for the race will total around £41,000. We need help to raise this money to get us in the Race. We have the placed £1k so we are registered for the Race, the reminder needs finding for the end of August.

    The PR associated with the race is hugely significant. Please see the attached pdf for TV, Press and PR statistics for the last race, which took place in 2016.

    You can see our boat in the image attached. As a major sponsor, your branding would completely cover the vessel. This link: will give you some idea of the excitement and tension that are inherent elements of the Challenge.

    If you’re as excited about this opportunity as we are, we would welcome your help to get us in the Race and the ability to raise monies for these fantastic Charities.

      Help us to feed ourselves daily - we would like to speak to schools it would be great for the pupils to follow us across the Atlantic and use various aspects of study as they do.

    We want to do very special for those that need help premature babies born too early who won't survive without the special and for the Fire Fighters who risk their lives every shift. So we decided to row the Atlantic for all of them raising funds to take their work further.
