John Lindsay JR ZAPCAT crazy fundraiser

Log In | Facebook

Jonny's finally gone mad and is undertaking a epic journey to raise money for a very good cause. Anyone who knows his dad, will know why!

Please give generously. I have seen very little publicity. I wouldnt undertake what he is doing im my boat, let alone a zapcat.

He is also raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support

He made it to Dublin.

Cookee, I dindt realise there were two charity pages. Thanks for info.

A long way from target. As I understand it, the engine, fuel and equipment mostly came out his own pocket, with the loan of the boat. Probably cost considerably more than has been donated so far....

My understanding is the boat was donated, thundercat is a race series name so is zapcat , the manufacture of the boat he is using is a Aquarius Aqua-Cat.
