FAQs

Take on the challenge of riding from London to Paris.

When does the trip take place?

  • 19 - 23 July 2017

What do I have to do to take part?

Complete the online registration form and pay the £125 registration fee indicated. This fee goes directly to our partner organiser, Global Adventure Challenges, upon registration and is non-refundable.

You will then need to raise a minimum sponsorship of £1470. 

You will need to be able to pay Rowcroft 80% of your minimum sponsorship 11 weeks prior to your departure. This is because Rowcroft must pay Global Adventure Challenges the cost of your trip in good time before you leave. The actual cost of your trip is £735 which will be transferred to Global Adventure Challenges to procure return travel via Eurostar, accommodation etc. The remainder of your sponsorship then goes straight to benefit Rowcroft.

How does Rowcroft benefit?

At least £735 of the £1470 minimum sponsorship you raise will be treated as a donation to Rowcroft Hospice. Any additional money you raise (over £1430) will also go directly to the hospice. The funds you raise will help Rowcroft to continue caring for over 2,200 people in South Devon who are living with progressive, life-limiting illnesses. The annual cost of delivering hospice services is £8.9 million and over 70% of that funding comes from the local community.

What if I can’t raise the minimum sponsorship?

We will provide you with a fundraising pack full of ideas on how to reach your target. You will also have the support of our Community Fundraising team to answer any queries along the way. However, if you do not manage to raise £1,470 four weeks  prior to departure you will have the choice of making up the shortfall yourself or transferring to a later challenge, so giving yourself longer to fundraise.

Where can I get more information?

Our Community Fundraising team is here to help. We can provide you with sponsorship forms, t-shirts and other branded goods to promote the fact you are raising funds in aid of our charity. Do call us on 01803 210835 or email Hayley at hayley.norrish@rowcroft-hospice.org.uk.

Our partner, Global Adventure Challenges, is open to take calls and queries on the logistics of the trip itself and you can reach them on 01244 676454 or email enquiries@globaladventurechallenges.com.
