We provide emergency shelter and tools to support families overwhelmed by disaster



Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my JustGiving page. 

The Trip..

I left on the 17th of March to cycle from my home in Somerset, England across Europe to Istanbul, Asia. My route will take me across England to Dover, over to France then Germany where I will meet the Danube and follow it through Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania to Bulgaria from there I will nip down to Turkey. As my organising progresses I'll add links to photos and a blog so keep checking here for updates..

The Charity..

I will be carrying out this solo adventure in aid of my chosen charity  ShelterBox who instantly respond to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.

Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.

The cost of a box is £490, including delivery direct to those who need it. Each box bears its own unique number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its recipient country.

Highly trained Shelterbox Response Teams distribute boxes on the ground, working closely with local organisations, international aid agencies and Rotary clubs worldwide.

Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has firmly established itself at the forefront of international disaster relief, providing emergency shelter for the people who need it most on every continent.

Just Giving..
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.

Many thanks
