    Weʼve raised £1,000 to help fund the rebuild of Newton Solney preschool

    Newton Solney, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 12th August 2017

    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.

    Story

    Newton Solney Pre-School first opened in 1972 and is a voluntary group affiliated to the Pre-School Learning Alliance. It is a registered charity and are managed by a committee and financed by fees and many fund raising activities. However, the unit has recently been told that temporary planning permission can no longer be granted and the building must be made permanent. We have been given just 3 years to fundraise and build a new contemporary pre-school building. Therefore, it is the school, pre-school and communities mission to raise £140,000 in just 3 years to help support the rebuild and leave a long lasting legacy for future generations.

    On Saturday 5th August starting at 8am we are challenging ourselves to a 10-hour non stop relay around a small loop within the village. My dad (Tim) and I are the challengers taking it in turn to run half hour legs of the route repeatedly, finishing hopefully in one piece at 6pm. The route is small so boredom is going to test us along with painful limbs and blisters. On the day donations can be made for cake and coffee for any supporters.

    The starting point of each lap is Holly Cottage, 2 Trent Lane, Newton Solney opposite the infant school. This is also where you can get your drinks and cakes to enjoy while we are suffering!

    We need your help and support to help us achieve a difficult endurance challenge.

We had support all the way and on counts so far have raised over £1700 for this great cause, smashing our target! So proud of us both and our village! Still time for last minute donations, but all thats left to say is a massive thank you to all.

      Final update before setting off tomorrow! Preparations being done for the course, took a bit of mowing. A bit of baking by myself along with loads more by family and friends. Most importantly a huge spag Bol to fuel me for a few laps. I'm so proud of how people pull together to support local and meaningful causes, despite what it seems like at times we live in a wonderful world with amazing people. Can't wait to get going now and do Newton Solney and all proud. Bring your running kit if you fancy running a few laps too and earn your cake.

      2 days to go until pain fest, can't wait for blisters, muscle soreness and all the great scenery we can explore on our 10hour relay around the smallest loop imaginable for such a long challenge! All going to be worth it with such amazing generosity to keep us going! Thanks so much everyone. X
