£4,220raised of £5,000 target by 128 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to support MIND and RNLI by Rowing solo around the coast of Britain

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.


This summer I will be attempting to set a world record to row 2000 miles non-stop around the coast of Great Britain. Before this year I'd never set foot on a boat before!

I'm hoping to raise a bundle of cash for MIND and RNLI

You can track my progress on my website:

This is w​​​​​​​​​​​​​​idely regarded as one of the toughest endurance ocean rowing challenges on the planet. Circumnavigating the British Isles in a 7 metre rowing boat involves navigating the worlds busiest shipping lanes, dangerous tidal currents and the bitterly cold North Sea, whilst carrying all the supplies required to survive the journey onboard. I will be stopping only to eat, sleep and shelter from any storms, I'll not be stepping back on dry land until the challenge is over.​​

Due to the way Just Giving is set up, a crowd funding page is the best way to raise money the two chosen charities. (Mind & RNLI).

99% of the donations that I receive will go direct to the chosen charities,

1% will go to help towards the cost of the row.

    Wow! Thank you one and all. Your generosity blows me away every time I’m able to check in from out here in the North Sea. We’ve smashed the £2,000 mark before I’ve made it home. So I’m doubling the target as I re-double my efforts to finish the row south. Please please share this page with anyone that you know who supports the RNLI and MIND. Just this week, I was reminded how vital these two charities are. I pushed my luck a bit too far, attempting to beat strong winds in to Peterhead... More on social media

    Yes! We've broken the £500 mark as I approach half way on my Round Britain Row. Thank you lovely people, I really believe in the work that my two chosen charities do and they fit perfectly with the row. MIND help so many people who are isolated and alone and the RNLI is like pre-paying for my own rescue! Thank you Thank you Thank you.
