    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 taken on the challenge to cycle from London to Paris (200 miles) in 3 days (1-3 September) - a long way for a 50 year old and the first time I have ever done anything like this! So I'm taking this opportunity to hopefully raise money to subsidise some young people from North London to experience a holiday of a lifetime.

    Falcon holidays are Christian-run camps aimed at disadvantaged young people, especially from inner city areas to give them a chance to experience an outdoor adventure holiday. More info here: https://www.ventures.org.uk/falcon-camps

    In October half-term, Tollington Parish will be running a Falcon camp for young people from the church and the wider community - hopefully about 40 altogether. I've helped to run these camps for many years, and have seen the hugely positive effect such an experience can play in the lives of the young people (and leaders!)

    It costs £125 per person. I would love to raise enough to help with the cost of some of the young people who otherwise couldn't afford to go - so please do give if you feel that you can!

      We made it to Paris....and had lots of fun on the way. Big thanks for all your support to help us exceed £1000. It's still not too late if you'd like to donate - this will enable us to help even more young people who otherwise couldn't afford to come on the adventure camp this October.

      Update by J D'Souza (Rachel's husband): I thought it would be good to send you an update for your support. Rach has been sponsored £850 (£775+offline donations) which is awesome - THANK YOU. If you know someone who would like to sponsor Rach there is still time :) Day 1: went well despite a detour! Day 2: cycling through some thunder & lightning on the open road - so quite memorable! nearly arrived at destination Evreux. Day 3(tomorrow) Rach's likely to be feeling it in more ways than one!

      Thanks so much to all who have sponsored me - some offline, so my total so far is £375. I start cycling to Paris tomorrow morning, so there's still time to sponsor me if you feel able.
