We raise funds for befriending to end loneliness for our older neighbours


We are very excited that in September this year James and Sol are taking part in the 'Saint Tropez or Bust' Banger Rally Challenge around Europe! We have bought a 17 year old 'banger' and are almost rally-ready!

The charity we are fundraising for is called B:Friend. B:Friend match volunteers with isolated elderly people in neighbouring communities, helping to prevent loneliness with support & companionship in and around South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

We have chosen 'Ey Up Duck' as our theme, as its a local saying here in the 'North' and something friends say to each other! We hope you follow our story over the next few months and help us spread the word to raise money for this amazing charity B:Friend.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

So make a donation and get your name on a duck (unless you select anonymous) and join us on the rally
