Thanks to your donations we’re on our way!

But we still need your help.

HELP US REACH OUR NEXT FUNDRAISING MILESTONE OF £20,000!

Choose a perk below and donate to our official Guinness World Record attempt to accomplish the first ever circumnavigation of the globe on a scooter and sidecar.

Our expedition will be 40,000 miles long and will take us through over 50 countries. We aim to tell everyday stories from each of the places we visit to inspire a more closely connected world and we’ll be raising funds and awareness to help fight modern day slavery.

Every penny raised over the cost of the expedition and the sharing of the stories will be donated to organisations who are supporting people affected by the decisions we make at home.
