Weʼve raised £550 to help towards funding for a ReFILL Water Station in Bude
- Tamar Lakes
- Funded on Wednesday, 25th July 2018
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.
14th July : He Did It! Saul successfully unicycled the 3 miles around Tamar Lakes this morning which took 40 minutes, followed by running Parkrun in a respectable 24 mins … boiling hot work and tired after the cycle!
The great news is that ReFILL has hit the target and Bude will be getting their water fountain! Funds from Saul's donations will go to Bude Seapool & Bude SLSC Nippers for urgently needed new kit.
thank you for your support!
Quick update on the plan for this challenge : Saul will get to Tamar Lakes at 07:30 tomorrow morning and unicycle the 3 miles around the lake (while checking the course is clear for the Park Runners) THEN will do Parkrun himself … We'll let you know how it goes.
THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO HAS SPONSORED SO FAR!
Saul started to teach himself to unicycle just 5 weeks ago. On Saturday 14th July he has set himself the challenge of attempting to unicycle the 3 mile bumpy (slightly hilly) trail around Tamar Lakes!
He hopes to raise enough funding for a ReFILL Water Station in Bude - encouraging people to reuse, refill and help keep Bude litter and plastic free.
ReFILL Bude is an exciting community-focussed practical scheme focussing on keeping some of the worlds most beautiful beaches plastic-free. The idea is to reduce the use of single-use plastic bottles, which create waste that lingers in the eco-system, damaging wildlife and habitats.
The scheme is asking people to make a simple change, and choose tap water, instead of buying bottled water, both at home, and out and about.
Adults in Cornwall will use an estimated 64 million single use plastic water bottles this year. With low local recycling rates, and a growing demand from industry to make bottles out of single use plastic, the scale of plastic entering our waste streams is rapidly increasing and too much of this waste is littering our oceans and land. Escaped plastic harms wildlife through entrapment and once ingested it finds it ways into our food chain.

Saul will pledge whatever he raises towards this cause on the evening of 14th July. If he has raised more than is needed OR not enough to help the Water Station meet its target the funds/excess will go to Friends of Bude Seapool
