Weʼve raised £7,517 to Remember Quinn with a sponsored Paris to London cycle ride
- London, UK
- Funded on Friday, 24th November 2017
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.
Team Quinn will be cycling from Paris to London on the 22nd-24th September in memory of our adored daughter Quinn Eleanor Markwell Hoskins and to raise money for the charity we have set up in her name.
Our beautiful Quinn was born on November 16th 2016. Devastatingly she lost oxygen during labour and was unable to stay with us for more than a few days. We had so many hopes and dreams for her, some of which were for her to travel and learn from the wonderful world around her. So, in her memory we have set up Quinnroads, a small charity that will soon start providing grants to school and college-age students in London to enable them to walk new roads on language-learning trips overseas which they would otherwise be unable to afford to participate in.
Quinn is also inspiring us to find new roads and we'll be challenging ourselves to travel many in her honour over the coming years.
For this year's adventure in her memory, Team Quinn consists of her dad Tom, grandad Mike, uncle Guy, and amazing friends Ian, Bre, Jen, Ollie, Matt and Rob who will be donning their padded shorts and making the approx. 202 mile journey from the Eiffel Tower to Buckingham Palace over 3 days (with support from Lindle, Charlie, Jessi and Sally along the route).
We, and they, would be extremely grateful for any sponsorship and support you are able to offer to cheer them on and help us grow this initiative in Quinn's name. And don't worry - we are covering all trip costs ourselves, so your donations will only be going towards the charity's grants.
If you are supporting someone particular then let us know in your message - everyone loves a bit of competitive fundraising! And if you fancy waving them back into London then get in touch and join us on the Mall during the mid/late afternoon of Sunday 24th September.
Huge thanks from us all,
Tom, Lindle and all of Team Quinn xxx
P.S. We've just got www.quinnroads.com up and running so you can keep an eye out for more news there. And our brand new registered charity number is: 1174353, but we're afraid we don't have Gift Aid set up just yet.

Now Team Quinn's sore muscles have had a chance to recover, we wanted to thank you for your overwhelming generosity that both encouraged them and enabled us to raise over £7200! We are so grateful for your support for Quinnroads, and we feel very fortunate to have been able to spend a weekend not only doing something inspired by Quinn, but also with the knowledge that so many people were thinking of her. It has been, and continues to be, a tough year, but last weekend was filled with happy memories – thank you for contributing to that. L&T&Q x
