Weʼve raised £3,643 to http://markedwardsfoundation.org - for the Mark Edwards Foundation.
- Langley and Leeds
- Funded on Wednesday, 9th October 2019
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.
Mark worked in various logistics roles throughout his career. He was a massive sports fan and while travelling in Sri Lanka he asked why the kids swapped pads and gloves when changing over. When he found out this was due to no equipment being available. He returned to the UK, contacted local schools and clubs for their spare kit and consolidated this into a container. The container was provided and shipped by Allport Cargo Services to Sri Lanka filled with bats, balls, pads and other equipment which was then distributed with the help of our Partner, Speedmark. Cancer struck him down in August 2017, aged just 44. Mark was larger than life character and fondly remembered by all who knew him.
SCM now hold an annual walk in memory of Mark and to raise money for this charity. Please give what you can.
