We are a team of 4 ladies from the South West who are hoping to take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, raising money & awareness for Cornwall Blood Bikes, Carefreebreaks & Hospiscare Exmouth & Lympstone. This is a 3,000 mile epic row in a small, compact ocean rowing boat which will be our 'home' for possibly 3 months while we are at sea. We leave from La Gomera in December 2019 and finish in Antigua hopefully in March 2020.
Although there were and are many deserving causes we really wanted to do something that would specifically benefit those close to us.
We are currently looking for sponsorship towards funding of the boat, equipment etc to make this epic challenge happen, alongside raising money and awareness for our designated charities. See our Just Giving Crowdfund Page details to the right =>
For more details or if you feel you may be able to contribute in any way (no sponsorship is too small!) please get in contact.
Cornwall Blood Bikes
We heard of Cornwall Blood Bikes by word of mouth, we hadn't heard of them before and it seems their work goes largely unnoticed by many of the general public. Most people seem to think NHS couriers work throughout the night but this is the time when Cornwall Blood Bikes take over.
68% of unpaid carers will have no break this year; many cannot afford one. Carefreebreaks is a new forming charity that enables unpaid carers to take short breaks in accommodation donated free-of-charge by the owner.
Exmouth & Lympstone Hospiscare is a LOCAL charity relying on LOCAL support to provide vital care to LOCAL families when they most need it. They provide specialist palliative care advice to patients who have been diagnosed with chronic life limiting conditions.
Our aim is to raise in excess of £50,000 to support these wonderful charities and to enable them to continue. It could be any one of us, our family or friends that could need them for help.
Keep up to date with us!
