Le Loop - supporting the William Wates Memorial Trust

This June I will be attempting to ride the 2024 Tour de France route over 21 days.  I will be riding to raise money for the William Wates Memorial Trust. 

This is a great charity that supports disadvantaged young people through sports, arts and education. 💯 %. money raised goes directly to the Charity 

If you like the charity and want to contribute please make your donation on the following link .  Thanks for your support 🙏 

Le Loop follows the official route of the Tour de France, one week ahead of the professionals and finishes 21 stages later in Nice (due to the Olympics in Paris).

The fundraised money is entirely separate from any of my costs - 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 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.

Chapeau Mate! A tenner a day doesn't really reflect the hard work I know you've done already, and the 19 tough days to come.
