Welcome to the Cariad Rose Trust.

The Cariad Rose Trust was established to raise money for projects specifically for one special child, and to support other charities that she feels connected with.

In October, we undertook a journey from Lands End to John o'Groats (via Ipswich) using only local public transport. See The Challenge to find out how we got on. Also check out the Thankyou's page to see our current fundraising total and specific thank you's to those that contributed and donated - we have so far raised over £15,000 of the £20,000 target - and donations are still coming in.

In short, the trip was a massive success - we arrived in John o'Groats on time and with only a few alterations along the way. You can read all about it at http://www.lejogbus.blogspot.co.uk

There is a more serious side to this challenge - raising money for a girl to have the trip of a lifetime: experiencing flying, America and other things that people said she would never do. In addition, any extra money will be donated to the 'Make a Wish' Foundation to enable other children with life threatening conditions to have their wishes become reality.

It is still not too late to donate to this epic event by donating

We posted photographs, information and regular updates on the journey on our facebook page and on Twitter - so, join in the fun... or just follow us on Twitter!
