    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Mylene and I will be running 10 marathons in 10 days from 25 November and we want to raise money to save our estate and raise awareness.

    Lambeth Council want to demolish the historic Central Hill Estate which was designed by award-winning architect and town planner Rosemary Stjernstedt. Finished in 1975, the estate (complete with its own nuclear bunker) was intended to preserve the skyline of the fresh air borough, providing fine views into central London as well as outside spaces for its tenants.

    This well established, diverse, but extremely cohesive community want to maintain what they have got and improve it for the benefit of all in the area, they do not want to see it demolished. Whilst spending thousands and thousands of pounds trying to coerce the residents through propaganda and sham consultations into giving up the estate, the council have given no support to community-led alternatives.

    An alternative plan by the Architects for Social Housing, which has resident support could provide answers to the challenges as stated by the council if promoted and funded appropriately.

    This past week Cressingham Gardens, another Lambeth estate in a very similar position has been to court to challenge the council again. hopefully they will win yet another victory against the council; we need to follow in their footsteps.

    The residents will need a lot of financial support to help fight the council and to fund alternative plans. Most residents believe that the estate should be brought up to an appropriate level of repair as it has been neglected over a number of years by the landlord (Lambeth's Labour Council).

    Thank you for your support

      We both finished the challenge on sunday. All our marathons were completed in under 6 hours and with no major issues. Some days it was hard to motivate ourselves to get out of bed but we were surrounded by incredibly supportive people and now life is back to 'normal' and the fight for the estate goes on. If anyone is inspired by what we have done and is interested in starting running or taking things to a new level then contact us and we'll do our best to help! Pete and Mylene

    We are running 10 marathons in 10 days and want to help save the Central Hill Estate in Crystal Palace. By the end of the challenge Mylene will have run 52 marathons in less than 52 weeks and I've done some silly things before, but never more than 4 marathons consecutively.
