How much goes to the good cause?

All donations go straight into ruralnet|uk’s Participation Fund. All the costs associated with the ride (accommodation, travel, gadgets etc) are being paid by me personally.

We use Justgiving to collect online donations. They charge 5% of the gross donation, which is the donation plus any tax reclaimed under Gift Aid. This means that, when a donation is made by a UK taxpayer, the charity receives approximately £12 for every £10 donated. When a donation is not eligible for tax reclaim, the 5% fee applies to the donation alone.

All the time spent on this project (this website, other time spent preparing the ride and actually doing it)  is  my own time.
