Story

Welcome and Thanks for taking the time to visit our Just Giving page.

On the 3rd of August we are taking up the challenge of cycling coast to coast from Whitehaven to Tynemouth which is a 140 miles. We aim to do this in less than 3 days stopping off at Penrith and Rookhope along the way. We will be following the C2C cycle route which takes us up hills such as Whinlatter and Hartside so it’s no light undertaking.

We are taking on this challenge to raise money for the Ocean Youth Trust North (OYT North). They are a charity specialising in the personal development of young people through the unique medium of ocean sailing. Through sailing they help young people, irrespective of their background, escape the difficulties the face at home. They acquire a range of life skills whilst working as part of a team and rising to the challenge of the sea. OYT North gives young people an experience that changes lives and inspires futures.

We relish the opportunity to raise awareness about OYT North and on a personal level make a contribution to help fund some deserving young people to sail onboard their sail training vessel James Cook.

Taking part in this challenge are staff, volunteers and friends of Ocean Youth Trust North. They include: Grace, Georgie, Mark, Matty, Emma, Laura, Sara - Jane, Graeme, Peter, Paul, Jamie, Ingrid and Joyce.

To donate is simple, fast and totally secure. If you are a UK taxpayer please ensure that you tick the ‘Gift Aid’ box so it can be reclaimed automatically on your donation. It’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now. We really appreciate your support and so will the young people that will benefit from your donation x
