    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On the 8th of July I will be running 10k around the city of Leeds for a Charity Run for my sister, Susans' good cause (soon to be registered charity) “Friends of Baxter” and we would welcome any sponsors, no amount too big, no amount too small. Every donation will go directly towards the costs of setting up a Holistic Therapy Centre and giving holistic caring treatments to animals in need – often abandoned or sick and typically with anxiety or other emotional issues.

    Who is Baxter AND why you should donate to Friends of Baxter ?

    Baxter is my sisters adorable, friendly, loving dog whom she adopted from a rescue centre that had taken him in from a dog compound where he would have been destroyed if not re-homed within a very short time. The thought of this doesn’t bear thinking about.

    As a qualified nutritionist Susan led a successful career as Head of Nutrition in one of the leading Supermarket chains in the UK, but after 20 year felt she had to change direction. She became interested in Holistic practices in particular Reiki. She achieved Master Teacher level in both Reiki and Animal Reiki and offers treatments as well as training courses, so more people can enjoy the benefits and begin a career in holistic therapy or just help their loving companions.

    It was through this learning that she saw the benefits of such treatments not only for humans but also for cats , dogs, horses and other animals. She receives wonderful results and feedback from owners and from staff at a ‘cat rescue’ centre where she and her students offer weekly voluntary treatments.

    Now , this is a very short summery. Susan has worked for the last few years to really push herself to the limits, through sweat, blood and tears and she is now getting closer to fulfilling her dream and reaching the first of her goals. We are hoping that her first book in the planned series, about her journey to helping sick abandoned and cruelly treated animals, will soon be published. It has been a tough road, but one that has also given her huge pleasure, very rewarding and opened up a new world. I have to say I am very proud of her, what she has achieved and will continue to achieve in the future when she sets up a therapy centre. In the future years she plans to open both a rescue centre and animal hospital.

    So please support my run, and Susans’ future Holistic Therapy venture so that many animals in need can enjoy the pleasure and benefits of her work and by the way , no refunds, I will make 10k !!

    A huge THANK YOU
