CaRott – the next challenge
Just wanted to make people aware of a trip that myself and a fellow longboarder and friend, Tim have put together. The trip is to take place from Calais in France to Rotterdam in the Netherlands (abbreviated to CaRott). We might make it further though…
We’re planning on travelling on the North Sea Cycle Route. The 200 miles (300km) is planned to take four days and we’re going to be carrying enough equipment to camp for 3 nights. We’ll be leaving Calais early on the 22/05 and returning on the 25/05.
If other people would like to accompany us for all or part of the trip then please get in touch. All we ask is for you to make a donation to the causes we are supporting.
Having been inspired by the many trips before us, we’re keen to try and raise money and awareness for charities. Therefore, this trip will support Oxfam365.
A little bit about Oxfam365
The Oxfam365 fund allows Oxfam to respond immediately after a disaster by providing essentials such as water, shelter and food as well as working to keep survivors healthy by preventing the spread of disease.
We’re also hoping to raise awareness of another organisation: RecySkate.
Some info on Recyskate:
Recyskate salvages skateboards and their components, assembles new boards so they are ready to use and distributes them either freely or as cheaply as possible to underprivileged children or like-minded youth organisations and charities.
If you would like to show your support and would like to donate to our cause, you can do so by clicking here. Your help is greatly appreciated!
Hopefully the weather will be sunny!
We would really appreciate help with acquiring camping equipment, skate equipment, clothes, shoes or food. If you can assist us, or would simply like more information please get in touch – any donators will of course be mentioned in all write ups, blogs, forums & magazines.
