raised of £500 target by 51 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,195 to donate food to FOUR local food banks

    Funded on Tuesday, 20th October 2020

    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.


    In an ideal world foodbanks wouldn't need to exist, no-one should struggle for basic necessities that most of us take for granted. Due to Covid-19 more people are finding themselves in a situation where they are forced to seek help and foodbanks are struggling to keep up with the demand.

    As you know I can't say no to a daft challenge so on Thursday 20th August I have decided to cycle from Redcar to Arnside in Cumbria and back again, approx 192 miles, in one day to raise funds to buy essentials for our local foodbanks.
