Story

www.boardfree.co.uk

Made it! On Monday 22nd January 2007 I skated into Brisbane's South Bank having skated across Australia from Perth. The five month journey involved plenty of blisters, some snake dodging, searing temperatures and just a few hills. 5823km skated in aid of three charities. This page closes on 27th February 2007, please please help us reach our target

On June 2nd 2006 I ended the first leg of BFUK, a 34 day warm-up for Aus by skating from John o'Groats in northern Scotland to Land's End in southern England. Thank you for visiting the BoardFree fundraising page! (For more information on BoardFree and our supported charities visit www.boardfree.co.uk)

Link Community Development are accounting for the funds we raise. Every penny donated through this site will be shared equally between the three charities we are supporting.

The Lowe Syndrome Trust is a small, family-run charity which works constantly to raise awareness about Lowe Syndrome and to fund research projects into the presently incurable disease. Link Community Development's work in Sub-Saharan Africa has had an inspiring influence on my life and provides thousands of children with an improved education, giving many communities a central pivot that will last for many lifetimes. Finally, through the sport of sailing Sailability Australia educates the broader community to the needs and attitudes of people with disabilities; it dispels many fears held by both the disabled and able bodied. Everyone is accepted for their ability and disability disappears as groups work and learn together.

Please visit www.boardfree.co.uk to read all about BoardFree's supported charities.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Link Community Development, the Lowe Syndrome Trust and Sailability Australia  will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

Many thanks for your support.
