In April 2018, 3 humans are leaving England for the challenge of a lifetime - cycling across the world with no arranged accommodation. Ed, Ryan and Tom will endure 10,000+ miles of willpower and determination with hopes of raising £10,000 for charity.
250,000 people in UK are affected by homelessness each year. 1/51 people in London are homeless and roughly 75% of homeless people report mental or physical health issues. Overcoming these issues to regain stability is near impossible without support. 70% of homeless people Trinity help, move on to live independently.
We are cycling this 10,000+ mile long journey from Bournemouth, England to Perth, Australia for homelessness. Throughout the entire cycling journey I will be homeless. Despite the possibility of staying at someone's house for a night or two, I aim to spend little to no money on accommodation. I will not have a fridge to store food and I will carrying one of the most basic forms of shelter, a tent. I expect I will be living like this for about 1 year.
Homelessness in England has increased 169% in the last year and Trinity Homeless Projects has made a huge positive impact to many peoples lives. They provided 25000 meals and directly helped hundreds of people into employment between 2015 and now. They understand that there is no temporary solution to the problem.
I will also be filming and documenting the whole trip. This will highlight not only the physical challenge of the journey but also raise awareness of the challenges of being homeless. I will be uploading it to this Youtube channel:
Thank you for taking your time to look into my cause!
