    Weʼve raised £385 to Take on the Romsey Relay Marathon!

    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 nonprofit.

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


    We're a local Waste Management company based in Romsey. In 2013 we took on the Romsey Relay Marathon and raised over £700 for CLAPA (Cleft Lip & Palate Association) a charity that helped a member of staff throughout his child and adult life.

    This year, 10 members of staff have opted to take part once again. Raising funds for Leukaemia Busters, Meningitis NOW and the Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight Fund. (Details below)

    The event is on 17th April at Broadlands, Romsey where each member of our team will complete two laps of a 1.3m circuit, totalling 2.6m each or 26 miles altogether.

    Our team is made up of males and females of varying ages and abilities. We would be delighted to smash our target of £1000 which will be equally split between our 3 chosen charities. Any amount you are able to donate is very gratefully received and will hopefully push us over the finish line faster!

    Meningitis NOW - Recycling Co-Ordinator and participant, Helen Liddell, fell ill last year and was diagnosed with Viral Meningitis. She says "I urge those who haven't already to get vaccinated against Meningitis, college and university students are particularly at risk, the disease can strike quickly and the results aren't always as positive as mine".

    Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy Fight Fund - Raising funds for the research and treatments of the muscle-wasting condition. Staff member and participant Nikki van Geffen says "My friend and her daughter both suffer from Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy and I'd like to raise as much as possible to support the charity as well as raising awareness."

    Leukaemia Busters - Our Recycling Manager, Russell Delves, sadly lost his Father aged 51 to Leukaemia in 2009. He says "I can't remember the last time I ran so it's definitely going to be a challenge! But for three great causes I couldn't say no."

    Thanks in advance,
    The Ace Liftaway Team :)
