    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

    In April 2018, Steve Ritchie and Bill Harra will be driving a 45 year old Triumph TR6 from Edinburgh to Lands End to John O'Groats and back to Edinburgh, stopping only for fuel and to switch drivers. We expect the journey to take around 33 hours driving time and to cover around 1700 miles.

    Our aim is to raise money for four local charities:

    Rock Trust, who provide support to homeless young people between the ages of 16 and 25 (http://www.rocktrust.org/);

    Sure Start who support children (pre-birth to 11) within disadvantaged families (http://www.midlothiansurestart.org.uk/);

    the Rosebery Centre, a day care facility for those suffering from dementia (http://www.roseberycentre.org.uk/) and

    Special Olympics Lothian, who support athletes with learning disabilities (http://www.lothianspecialolympics.org/)

    If you would be willing to sponsor us on our epic journey, we would be delighted to have your support. Every penny counts. Thank you.
