    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

    The Windmill Fundraising Campaign is raising funds for the Neurosurgery Department at Salford Royal Hospital and for the breast care specialists at the Christies hospital. We all know people or family who have suffered with cancer. I want to do my little bit to help raise funds for Lynne Potts campaign for Christies and Salford Royal, so we can help others. I will be riding 500 miles in one day, visiting 6 windmills in the counties of Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire.

    I intend to ride solo from Greater Manchester Police Headquarters on Monday 27th November 2017, setting off at 6am. I intend to visit windmills around the country as a tribute to Lynne's campaign title. Hopefully I will complete this journey in 12 hours.

      Well I made it , was 14 hours , had sunshine , wind, hailstone, but mostly rain, lots of rain, got drenched on the way back from Lytham. Have put the Live videos on my Facebook page, But it is about Lynne and her Campaign to keep the battle against Cancer, to encourage the Doctors and Scientists to keep on doing what they do, finding innovative new ways to operate and to find treatments to stop people suffering and having their world turned upside down. All you BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE have help get the world a step closer to that expectation. THANKYOU

      Last day, things to check through, write down route for one. You BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE have been so kind. We are £90 short of the target online, but I have a sponsorship form up at work and loads of BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE have been giving me money for that. I am really moved and grateful for your generosity and support. Thank you , I will not let you all down, I might wish I'd have chosen to do it in the summer,but then it wouldn't have been a challenge, distance aside. THANK YOU BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.

      Wow , Wow , Wow. It's brilliant how kind and caring people have been. This is one of the pictures taken at HQ yesterday morning. I am keeping an eye on the weather this weekend. On Monday I think it will be Cold all the day, and then Wet early on and possibly Dry for the final journey back. Updates will be sent to GMP Twitter feed.
