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.

Story

QE2 Activity Centre, a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), provides activity opportunities for people with additional needs in the interests of social welfare with the object of improving conditions for life.

It does this through the provision of facilities, activity sessions and day services for people with disabilities and their families and carers..

For the past forty years QE2 Activity Centre has been taking people out on the Hamble River in canoes, kayaks and wheelchair accessible motorboats. In recent years demand for accessible boating has increased and we have been lucky to have two motorboats available. However the older of the two needs replacing and we’d like your help!

We aim to have the new boat on the water by Summer 2021. This is an optimistic target but we’re nothing if not optimistic! Our overall fundraising target is £40,000 and we’d like you to get involved. We are looking for teams and individuals who would like to join our 2021 Challenge – From QE2 to Timbuktu!

Of course with travel restrictions and everything else going on we can’t actually go to Timbuktu but we can walk the 5000 kilometres to get there. And that’s where you come in. We’re looking for people to help pile on the steps, with a target of 5,000 kilometres to walk and £5,000 to raise. Did I say walk? You can walk, run, wheel, skate or cycle. And don’t forget we have to cross the Channel and Mediterranean, so we are looking for people to canoe, kayak, or paddleboard too.

Everyone can get involved!

We want a sustained effort – we want you to do a bit every day during February, March and April 2021. Exercise is more effective when it is repeated so we want to encourage people to get into the habit of doing more regular exercise. We’ll tot up the miles each day and plot how far we’ve gone. Don’t worry if we do too many miles – we have to get back too! The more people that are involved the further we’ll go and the more we’ll raise.

Be a part of it!
