Weʼre raising £3,000 to drive the Dakar Chalkenge & donate my car to the charity in The Gambia.
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.
When a mate of mine said: “I’ve never really done much for charity” it struck a chord with me. He then described how he was going to donate his car to charity in Gambia. Of course being a friend of mine means he is hopeless & changed his mind!
So I (and chum Phil Huke) decided to do it. It’s a bit of a wheeze and involves driving from Warner HQ In Brittany to Tarifa in Spain & then heading south through Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Senegal, arriving in Banjul in The Gambia.
At the end I donate my car to the Charities Control Committee. The vehicles are auctioned and the funds raised are distributed to local worthy causes.
It’s about 3 weeks and then I fly home. I actually have a second car if anyone wants to join (2 people) which I’ll also donate. Although the car is the charitable donation there are some significant costs. It’s starts about 28/12/19 for three weeks.
