Raised by 73 people in 1 month
Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Wiltshire Search and Rescue, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me. On 6th July, I will be cycling up and down to the White Horse a minimum Bratton side, a minimum of 75 times to raise money for local charity Wiltshire Search and Rescue. Aiming to complete the challenge in under 16 hrs. This will add to atotal.of 120.miles +.  The ‘Everesting’ attempt, which sees cyclists pedal up and down the same hill to reach a 29,029ft / 8,848m target - the same height as Everest - was invented in 2014. https://everesting.cc/ The challenge is simple yet physically incredibly tough and I will need to dig deep to see it completed. But I am determined to fundraise for a charity close to my heart.  “Wiltshire Search and Rescue volunteers go out to look for vulnerable and missing people throughout the county and beyond. We might not have any mountains in Wiltshire but these guys certainly endure their own challenges, out in all weathers, looking for loved ones who have gone missing. The recent search by the team in Savernake Forest made me realise I wanted to give something back and I thought this challenge was something that fitted well.”  I have planned to  start his attempt at dawn, hoping to finish before it gets dark on 6th July. The hill chosen is the White Horse . But the Everesting challenge is clear on one thing – every True  Everesting attempt must be on a new hill. Just under 3,500 completed Everesting attempts have been verified across over 80 countries in the world!!   Wiltshire Search and Rescue team members are professionally trained volunteers. The team is called out by Wiltshire Police to search for missing and vulnerable people such as people with dementia or people in mental health crisis. In 2018 the team was called out over 70 times, being directly responsible for saving lives. Wiltshire Search and Rescue is a charity, relying solely on fundraised income for running costs and major purchases such as this vehicle. The team receives no statutory or government income and all donations of money or equipment are gratefully received. More information about Wiltshire Search and Rescue: Wiltshire Search and Rescue exists to assist Wiltshire Police in the search for vulnerable missing persons. Our primary aims are to search, locate and remove the missing person (MisPer) to a place of safety. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT! Thanks to A2B bike repair for sponsoring by servicing my bike ready for the challenge.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
