The William Wates Memorial Trust exists to celebrate the life of William Wates who was tragically killed when travelling in South America. The Trust is a grants giving registered charity set up in 1998 with a mission to help the most disadvantaged young people keep away from a life of crime and violence, and fulfill their potential. This is mainly achieved by supporting charities that engage young people through the mediums of sports, arts and education.
The Tour de Force 2013 ended triumphantly in Paris on 15th July. Another wonderful event, enjoyed by all. The trustees would like to thank all riders and their supporters for their incredibly generous support. We are still totalling up the final numbers but it looks like you may have raised £400,000. An incredible effort. And one that all the charities we support are truly grateful for. See you again in 2014!
