Story

My huge thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. 

Sarah’s life was tragically cut short at the age of 24 when, on April 6th 2013, she was brutally murdered on a houseboat in Kashmir. The devastation and grief caused by this inexplicable event has been indescribable. Hundreds, if not thousands of people have been affected emotionally and some are still receiving counselling as a direct result.

Due to Sarah's insatiable love of life, together with her desire to make a change in the world and her determination to help as many people as she could, the Sarah Groves Foundation has been established in Guernsey as a Charitable Trust. It will focus on Sarah's inspirations and aspirations which came from art, children, adventure, and fitness. This fund will continue Sarah's legacy, which is all about love, helping others, and achieving ones dreams. 

 Under the category of “fitness” or in my case "madness", a 600 mile bike ride between Guernsey Bilbao Guernsey will be supported by the Foundation in order to raise funds to support its overall aims.

Known as the  "2016 Tour De Sez" it will take place in September. Lasting for 7 days it will comprise 75 amazing like-minded individuals cycling to Bilbao before returning to Guernsey. Fortunately for me, this will be undertaken with full support facilities throughout.

Participants are putting themselves through this incredible challenge in order to raise as much money as possible for The Sarah Groves Foundation. We are not an elite group of cyclists, far from it,

but we are as a collective, incredibly motivated.

The team is going to do something never attempted from Guernsey before but we have an incredible motivation to make this challenge become a reality and for ourselves, to live a life less ordinary, just like Sarah.

It would be fantastic if you felt able to support my efforts and help me raise funds to enable the Sarah Groves Foundation continue its great works in Sarah's name.  No donation will be considered too small and of course, none will be considered too large - it is incredibly easy to do! If you wish, you can remain anonymous and can hide the actual amount you donate – it’s entirely your choice. 

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. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thank you again for taking the time to read my story and any support you are able to give, will be hugely appreciated.
