Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

I am trying to help people and their families who are affected by cancer so that they do not have to suffer from the same loss as me and my family.

My beautiful Mum lost her wonderful life fighting until the very last second to cancer. Before my Mum passed away I made a promise to her that I would raise £1,000 for every year of her amazing life. I will be doing fundraising events until I reach the total of £43,000.

So far we have raised over £17,000 which is amazing. We and our friends have raised money by selling tea and cake, we have collectively ran marathons, walked the Yorkshire peaks, danced and laughed our way to this brilliant total. In 2017 my Dad and Uncle are running the Brathay Marathon, bike rides are being organised, friends are completing a marathon in London and our friend Lorraine has entered herself for a boxing match. We still need more events to get to £43,000.

We have had lots of generous support but I would especially like to thank Redrow Homes, Salford Harriers and Seven Brothers Brewery for their fantastic donations so far.

The support around my family from the three charities has been amazing and my thank you is raising money for them. The whole world will see the difference when there is a cure to all cancers.

All donations will be split between MacMillan, St. Ann's Hospice and The Christie to make sure that an end to cancer comes sooner.
