The William Wates Memorial Tru ...
Hello and Welcome from The Opta Grupetto
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.
This July, six keen/brave/foolhardy cyclists from Opta are riding the route of stages 12-16 of the 2012 Tour de France as part of the Tour de Force event, raising money for the William Wates Memorial Trust (www.wwmt.org), a charity that helps disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence. Comprising 985 gruelling kilometres in five days, in both the Alps and the Pyrenees, this is a monumental challenge and we would appreciate your support. None of us are great bloggers but we will be able to muster the energy to write 140 characters at a time in the time honoured OptaJoe fashion, so for news about our progress and general tweets about the somewhat faster race following on behind us go to https://twitter.com/#!/TheGrupetto.
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further – and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent you will boost your donation.
Thank you for your support.
Duncan Alexander, Nick Bentley, Aidan Cooney, Florian Diederichsen, Matt Drew and David Johnson a.k.a. The Grupetto
About The William Wates Memorial Trust
The William Wates Memorial Trust is a registered charity set up in 1998 with a mission to help disadvantaged young people fulfil their potential, and stay away from a life of crime, using the mediums of sports, arts and education.The Trust exists to celebrate the life of William Wates (1977- 1996) who was tragically killed when travelling in South America. Will was a much-loved young man and is very much missed by his family and friends. His family set up the trust to shine some light into the lives of young people who have not had the advantages that Will enjoyed and we feel the aims of the trust reflect where his interests would have been if he was alive today. We are delighted to announce that the Trust has now donated just over £1M and helped over 8,000 disadvantaged young people fulfil their potential. Please have a look at our website www.wwmt.org to find out more about the amazing charities that we have supported.
