The purpose of the QECR is to raise funds to support the work of The Connection at St Martin’s. The QECR is organised by the Friends of the Connection, a separate volunteer-run charity which exists solely to support The Connection, so all the money you raise will go through the Friends to support The Connection’s work.
The easiest way to collect sponsorship is by creating a page on BT MyDonate, linked to the Cycle Ride. To do this, either google BT MyDonate or go to, click on Start Fundraising and then on Join an organised event. If you are not already personally registered with MyDonate, you will need to do so. Once logged in, select Friends of the Connection as the charity, and choose Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride as your event. You can then create your own Fundraising page. If you are at all unclear about any aspect of this, you can get further help by downloading detailed instructions here

You may prefer to use a traditional sponsorship form and this is particularly useful if you want to collect sponsorship from colleagues at work, fellow students, friends at church etc. You can download a Sponsorship Form here it is important to use this form to ensure we can claim gift aid where appropriate
