Le Loop - raising money to support the William Wates Memorial Trust - helping disadvantaged young people fulfil their potential

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals, starting in Florence and finishing 21 stages later in Nice.  After seeing the route for this year, Mark Cavendish said it would be 'very, very, very hard!' 

On Friday 21st June 2024 around 100 riders will gather in Florence for the 'Grand Depart'. Some of us will do all 21 stages and we'll be joined by riders who will complete fewer stages throughout the tour.

Every participant commits to raising a minimum amount for the William Wates Memorial Trust (WWMT). The fundraised money is entirely separate from the participation fee - your donations do not pay for my Tour

All monies raised go directly to the William Wates Memorial Trust whose mission is to help the most disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence and fulfil their potential. This is achieved by giving grants to local charities that engage young people through the medium of sports, arts and education.

It's been a tough couple of years for charities and particularly for young people. This is my chance to give something back and help support young people who aren't lucky enough to enjoy the advantages in life that most of us take for granted. Many of you have supported my fundraising generously before, I know there are many worthy causes out there and I understand you may not be able to sponsor me now, but if you can, I can assure you that the work this money pays for is vital and of the highest quality.
