My story

Môn SAR is a Lowland Search and Rescue team, based on the island of Anglesey in North Wales. The team are all unpaid volunteer members and on call 24/7, 365 days a year, ready to support North Wales Police and other emergency services in searching for vulnerable missing people, both on the island and the North Wales mainland.

I had signed up to ride the 'Route Canol' at the Tour de Môn, the 77 mile route on Anglesey, on Sunday 23 August 2020 to raise funds for Môn SAR. Unfortunately this has been postponed due to COVID-19. I'd estimated the ride would take me about 6 hours in the saddle - a challenging endurance test at the best of times!

Whilst this is disappointing, I'm still going to try and complete the Tour, only now on a turbo-trainer from the safety of my own drive (or garage if it's raining!). I therefore plan to spend 6 hours riding on my road bike fitted to a turbo-trainer; this will be more painful than riding on the road so the padded cycling shorts will be needed. Please do support me in my quest to raise funds for Môn SAR.

Môn SAR receives no central funding; the team is totally reliant on public donations to stay up and running. All team members are required to buy their own personal kit.

It costs nearly £16,000 per year to keep the team operational and this all has to be raised by fundraising and donations. The team also have a 'Wish List' of equipment they'd like to buy, totalling another £19,000.

I'm a Search Technician with the team and have been involved in many searches for suicidal and despondent people, injured walkers and even people lost in the dark in Newborough Forest. It's a vital service to the community and we really need your help to keep going.

I hope you'll support me in my quest to raise as much as I can for Môn SAR, a vital resource.

Thank you!

Paul

Just a few days until I do the 6 hour static bike ride. The weather forecast is a bit iffy, so I might need to set up in the garage! I'm very close to my fundraising target and will be live-tweeting on the day. So, come on, help me get to £500....every little helps!

Diolch yn fawr,

Paul

Now that the Tour de Môn has been postponed until 2021, I now plan to complete the 77 mile route on a stationary turbo-trainer at home. That's 6 hours in the saddle! It'll be hard and it'll be painful, but I hope you'll help me raise funds for Môn SAR.
