Bourne To Ride

The team at Bourne to Garden are travelling 880 miles from Lands End to John O'Groats on a ride-on lawnmower.

Our target is to get there within 5 days to raise funds for three amazing charities.


We're hoping to break the Guinness World Record whilst we're at it!

Colin, Managing Director of Bourne to Garden says “The idea started from wanting to raise money for MND, following my wife’s late father suffering with this illness. I wanted to do something a bit different to raise awareness but also raise money for the research this charity funds into this cruel disease. As I own a company that uses tractors and mowers all day undertaking grounds maintenance, I did some research on mower challenges and discovered the current Guinness Book of Records holder for this challenge achieved a 874 mile route in 5 days, 8 hours and 36 minutes with an average speed of 9mph. This seemed a perfect fit and Bourne to Ride was born!“

“Bourne to Ride” is supporting MNDA, who fund essential research into Motor Neurone Disease (MND) to establish a cure for this life shortening illness. MND affects the nerves called motor neurones in the brain and spinal cord. These nerves tell your muscles what to do. When motor neurones are damaged, it can affect the way your body works. MND is a progressive illness.

Colin, a Freemason in East Kent for 24 years, is the Charity Steward of his lodge and as such raising funds for good causes is his passion. The Masonic Charitable Foundation donated last year £21.5 million to people in need as well as donating over £51million to charitable organisations. These donations range from supporting local charitable needs across the country through to large international appeals such as the Ukraine Disaster Appeal where the MCF have recently donated over £750K.

The third charity is Kenward Trust, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation charity based in Yalding, Kent. They help people on their recovery journey and offer essential housing for the homeless. This charity is solely funded by donations and fund raising.
