Who we're supporting

We have chosen seven local Portsmouth charities and worthy causes to support this year. We have also asked York City FC to nominate a charity cause close to their hearts. All money raised will be divided equally between the eight organisations

The Elizabeth Foundation

We facilitate early diagnosis for babies and pre-school children with all degrees of deafness and provide comprehensive educational and support services for them and their families.
By doing so we enable these children to develop their listening and spoken language skills, as well as build their self-esteem and give parents the confidence and knowledge to make informed decisions on behalf of their child.

Harbour Cancer Support

Based in Gosport, Harbour Cancer Support gives practical and emotional support to anyone who has been affected by cancer, whether they are someone who has been diagnosed with the disease or their family, carers and friends.
The service offers a safe haven overlooking Portsmouth Harbour for people to spend time in a calm environment, where trained staff and volunteers are on hand to listen, give advice and help in finding information.

Jack’s First steps

In May 2012 Jack was diagnosed with spastic diplegic Cerebral Palsy, and has to wear a lycra suit for his posture, have splints to help with his balance, and use sticks or a walker to move.
The only chance he has of walking unaided is by having a specialist operation, which is only available in Missouri. His parents are fundraising the £66,000 to get him there and pay for the procedure, equipment and rehabilitative physiotherapy.

Sam’s Haven

Set up by Paul and Louise Merrick after their son Sam spent many happy holidays at Haven Holiday Park in West Sussex, Sam’s Haven provides respite breaks for terminally or chronically ill children being treated at Portsmouth’s Queen Alexandra Hospital.
The charity raises money constantly throughout the year to pay for the caravan’s upkeep and fees, and to provide four to five day breaks for up to 15 families a year - more, if fundraising allows.

To be confirmed

We have asked York City FC to nominate a charity cause close to their hearts, as we wanted the ride to connect with their local community also.
We will update with more details when we have confirmation...
