    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

    Our dear friend Theo was tragically killed in a cycling accident on the 10th July 2017. Theo was a wonderful husband, father and friend, we all miss him terribly. He was clever, funny and loyal and our world is not the same without him.

    He loved cycling and was brilliant at it. Chris and I are going to attempt the London L'Etape on the 24th of September, raising money so his memory lives on. The law firm he was a partner at, Bristows, are setting up a fund with Ali and their children to support non-privileged young people who want to follow Theo and study the law.

    Please give generously, every penny counts and will help someone that wouldn't ordinarily get a chance like this to become a lawyer.

    The money we raise will be sent donated to the foundation once it is in place. If for some reason it is not setup we will divide the money between the two charities Theo and Ali support, Crisis and Shelter.

      Chris and I did the ride today. It was a great day for it. The ride was hard, long and although not a huge amount of climbing (1500m in total) there was many rolling hills. The 185K took us about 8 hours in total. We'll sleep well tonight, and I suspect be somewhat sore tomorrow! Thank you to everyone that sponsored us. It's a good start for his foundation.
