Rob’s story

The real heroes in this challenge are Rob Compton and friends who are keen cyclists, but wanted to support FOYCS by doing something different. This IS different, AND challenging to all of them.

In the 6th month of the year - June - they will ride for 6 hours in one day.

In the 7th month of the year - July - they will ride for 7 hours in one day.

In the 8th month of the year - August - they will ride for 8 hours in one day.

In the 9th month of the year - September - they will ride for 9 hours in one day.

In the 10th month of the year - October - they will ride for 10 hours in one day!!!


This fundraising site (Wonderful.org) is free to use, and FOYCS is run purely by volunteers, so all the money raised will go directly to the charity.


FOYCS is a charitable trust that helps children and young people between the ages of 5-17 years to have a break from their caring duties. Young carers look after someone in their family home who has an illness, physical or learning disability, a mental health illness or misuses drugs or alcohol. They take on the practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities normally expected of an adult. Because of this they tend to miss out on the simple, enjoyable experiences that most children take for granted. FOYCS will fund much needed breaks or support to these young carers.


Rob and friends are delighted to support FOYCS and their work and hope you will join them by sponsoring them on this Enduro Challenge.


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

FRIENDS OF YOUNG CARERS (SWINDON)

Friends of Young Carers (Swindon)

The focus of Friends of Young Carers Swindon is to provide help and support to young people caring at home for relatives with physical or mental disabilities, or struggling with addiction.  

 

We enable young carers to behave like children and be treated like children, rather than the routine adult world they invariably live in. We’ve helped hundreds of children under the age of 18 in Swindon and surrounding districts to have a life outside of their caring responsibilities. 

 

The charity carries out its objectives without distinction of sexual orientation, nationality, ethnicity, race, colour, disability, political or religious beliefs.

 

·      We support recreation and leisure activities (football, gymnastics, swimming, rock climbing, music lessons, horse riding, days out etc.) with the aim of improving the conditions of life of young carers.

·      We advance the education of young carers by improving the advice and information available to them.

Friends of Young Carers (Swindon) is a registered charity in England and Wales. Charity number 1094276​.
