Our Sponsors

Gavin’s Bike Hospital

Gavin Wheeler is very kindly helping me get back in the rally by preparing my new Honda for the rigours of the Rally. A man who has owned bikes since the ’70s, Gavin spent Spring 2000 doing his own adventure around Iceland – so he knows what the bike will have to put up with.

Gavin does Servicing and MOT preparation, find him at Oxford

A big thank-you to the lovely staff at Oxford’s GoOutdoors, who have provided me with a lightweight tent, mat, water-purification drops, an MSR Whisperlite Internationale petrol camping stove, MSR fuel bottle, and loads of insect repellent!

As well as offering to sponsor our camping needs, they even helped me choose exactly the right tools for the job – talk about compact pro kit, the tent packs down smaller than the roll-mat! Every kilogram counts.

Al Fresco’s Hanoi

Many thanks for donating a massive TEN $50 vouchers to eat in any one of their Hanoi restaurants. The tickets are being used to raise sponsorship – the raffle is coming soon.


Many kind thanks to the following for their donations to my JustGiving websites. Your donations were received by the charities within 7 days of submission. I really appreciate the help, thank you!! :) :)
