    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.


    In September 2017, just after entering the realm of 'cycling veteran' (eligibility criteria: owning a bike and exceeding the age of 39) I'll be riding the length of the UK, from Land's End to John O Groats, a total of 969 miles in 9 days.

    I'll be riding as part of the Deloitte sponsored Ride Across Britain, with around 800 others, and covering an average of around 110 miles a day. Apparently there are some hills, but I'm assured there will be a constant following wind to make it easier...

    It seemed like a good idea a year ago, less so now, but also an opportunity to raise support two local charities, one of which (Light Up) which I have been involved with since its creation.

    I'm extremely grateful for any sponsorship you can provide. I'll be starting on 9th September and progress will be updated on my Facebook page and Strava (the free cycling app).

    Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends, following the ideas about cancer care originally laid out by Maggie Keswick Jencks. Aberdeen's Maggie's centre opened in 2013.

    Light UP Children's charity offers small grants of £1000 and less to children living in Aberdeenshire who by virtue of ill-health, disability, financial hardship or any other disadvantage need further assistance within the charity's criteria.
