1st June 2013 - the day of departure approaches and we are at £4,459.32 including Gift Aid so nearly at 50% of our target - which is fantastic. A mixture of excitement and apprehension now as the long ride approaches. Hey - the weather has improved though so no problems!
13/5/2013 - Current sponsorship Status: We are nearly at the 30% target mark (without Gift Aid) before we even set off (three weeks today we travel to the start) and we have had donations from far and wide including Australia and Canada. Many thanks to you all, you are inspiring in your generosity and encouragement. With Gift Aid we stand at £3454.32 so just over the 30% of target, truly magnificent.
As of 12:30 Wed 4th April we have reached over £1,300 in sponsorship (ie 13% of target) thanks to everyone's kind generosity and we still have more promises in the pipeline. We should be featuring in the Hexham Courant from Friday (6th April) and the Courant will be following us through the journey.
Gary Nicol, sponsor, is going to support us with live tracking facilities so you can see where we are on the ride via online maps. Thank you very much Gary - wonderful.
22 March 2013 - we are a week into running the web site and JustGiving page live and are 7% towards target - thank you all for your generosity. There are lots of additional promises in the pipeline totalling over £200.
We have just got started on sponsorship on 12/3/13 but now have £135.
Gary Nicol has kindly donated a very Generous £100 via Just Giving.
