Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

 ”Bike to the Future” is a sponsored cycle expedition around the globe. The aim is to raise both funds and awareness for good causes through sponsored challenges and fundraising events. The project will also engage with local charity projects I come across on my journey, and stop to work with them where possible. I will document the journey through a blog and video diary, in a hope to inspire action and promote awareness of the causes.

Charity 1:

Calvert Trust Lake District

The Lake District Calvert Trust provides residential outdoor activity courses for people of all ages with physical, sensory, learning, behavioural and/or mental disabilities. Its mission is to challenge disability through outdoor adventure. Pioneering equipment adaptations, and intensive, instructor-led activity programmes (that include climbing, abseiling, canoeing, sailing, horse/trap driving, archery, orienteering and paragliding), provide an environment whose aims are to teach, challenge, motivate, engender confidence in ability, promote independence, and foster integration. All instructors are highly trained and specialist qualified, and the facilities are specially adapted and fully accessible to all. The Lake District Calvert Trust provides a unique and life-changing experience for those with disabilities, who are encouraged to believe that it’s what you CAN do that counts.

On the Road:

I am currently researching and contacting charities and projects on my route that I hope to get the chance to visit and offer help where possible. If you would like to recommend a charity, or are a charity and would like to work with me please get in touch.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now.
