    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.

    Story

    In 2007 an incredible wife, mother and grandmother lost her fight against heart failure. Jill Wheater had been strengthened and supported for many years by her specialist heart nurse Sharon, funded by the British Heart Foundation. The research and services which this charity supports are vital to so many people. We as a family are indebted to St Catherine's Hospice in Scarborough for the help and care which we needed in October 2007 as Jill's condition worsened and no further treatment was possible. Jill's husband Paul is going to Throw-A-Mile on 19th May 2017 in order to raise money for both of these charitable causes. Using a heavy athletics hammer, Paul will need to complete nearly 100 throws in order to total 1 mile. Following this he will be singing at a free concert in the Spa Pavilion in Whitby from 2pm. Anyone is welcome to attend. We would love to raise some money to help those who will benefit from the amazing services which both these charities offer to those in need.

      We are delighted to let everyone know that Dad competed his mile, with 30 metres to spare! Thank you so much for all the support and the donations. Including donations which came in, separate to the page, Dad has raised over £1000. This means that St Catherine's Hospice and the BHF will receive over £500 each. Thank you for all the help to enable their work to continue. The page will run until July, in case anyone would like to add to our total!

      Wow! Thank you so much for all the generous donations received so far! We may have to raise our target amount! Dad is training hard, with a bit of help from his family.
