Cycle 500 miles in 5 days to Hartz expedition in Scotland, 15 August 2023
We take young people on expansive adventure to help them realise their potential


British Exploring Society is a youth development charity, which for over 90 years has transformed the lives of young people, through outdoor adventurous learning.

All our expedition places are fully funded, from the generous donations we receive. This means that money is not a barrier to coming on an expedition with us, and we are able to give life-changing experiences to young people from disadvantaged and challenging backgrounds.

As Chair of the charity, I am doing my bit to raise money this summer, by cycling from my home in Hampshire to our Hartz Scottish Explorers expedition on Loch Tay in Scotland. This means over 500 miles of pedalling in 5 days: a very tough challenge for me!

Please give whatever you can to help me fundraise for British Exploring Society: every £ we raise will go directly to helping change the lives of more young people. Thank you!

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.
