Solo sail around Iceland from Whitehaven, UK

£760 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 4 months
Do you want to join me in making a difference ?
I'm raising money for PARENT TEACHER AND FRIENDS ASSOCIATION OF HALSALL SCHOOL ST CUTHBERTS and any donation will help.

I will be sailing my mini transat yacht (
that’s only 6.5 mtrs long) from the UK to Iceland and back. So what you may say. 
The yacht has no creature comforts - no toilet (only a bucket!), no bunk -only a beanbag, and live in a space smaller than you’d want to cage a dog in, whilst also dealing with whatever the weather throws at me. I will also have to deal with missing Whales and possibly ice bergs ! All this whilst following a sleep pattern of no more than 20 minutes a time.

I am looking to leave Whitehaven early June and school will be tracking my progress - they will be able to look at the weather and learn about weather patterns and forecasts and follow my trip.

Anything you can give towards the school funds would be much appreciated.

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.
