#HeadToWCEU Map



In May 2020 members of the WP&UP team will be leaving the WordCamp Europe 2019 venue; The Estrel, Berlin, Germany and undertaking a gruelling 3,000 km ride across Europe to the 2020 #WCEU venue; Super Bock Arena, Porto, Portugal.

You can follow along with every update as the team prepares both physically and mentally to undertake this charitable ride. 



No member of the team is a professional athlete.  This is being undertaken by members of the WordPress community, to help support WP&UP's mission.

Head over and read more about the riders and their stories.  You can also subscribe for regular updates on their nutritional and exercise plans.

Interested in being involved? Check out this page or email us and let us know why you're interested and we can share more about what's involved. Be sure to mention #HeadToWCEU.

#HeadToWCEU The Riders



The #HeadToWCEU project aligns with WP&UP's mission; to support and promote positive mental health within the WordPress community.

Our intention is to raise awareness of the need for improved mental and physical health.

WP and UP

The journey will be documented by the team, you will also be able to be part of this yourself.  Every team member will continue their regular day-to-day activities; running their businesses, undertaking work responsibilities, and ensuring their personal lives are balanced.  We will demonstrate small changes amounting to an overall improvement in our physical and mental well-being.



This project wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for companies who believe in supporting a positive, healthy community.  WP&UP is a registered non-profit that ensures support is delivered to community members at times of greatest need.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows #HeadToWCEU to claim tax back on eligible donations.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like #HeadToWCEU to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that #HeadToWCEU will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When #HeadToWCEU receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
