My page:

Hello and thank you for coming to the fundraising page. I'm not asking for money to help me take part in this mad challenge to circumnavigate India by rail.I've happily paid for my trip and will probably derive a good deal of pleasure from it. So why sponsor me? It sounds easy enough, just keep sitting on trains for a couple of weeks.  Not so.

A team of rail experts and India buffs have spent over a year painstakingly working out the quickest set of trains and routes to reach the furthest north, south, east and west points of the Indian rail system. Through blog and thread a team of over 20 complete strangers have assembled to prove that the entire 12,000kms can be covered in two weeks of timetable testing turmoil. As this is a rail challenge we have chosen to use it to raise awareness of the charity Railway Children whose link you will see on this page. Also, to find out about the challenge itself and how it has come about you can go to

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity RAILWAY CHILDREN. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on the charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.  I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
