Weʼre raising £3,000 to help fund an all weather astro turf sports field and running track at my children's school.

Bournemouth, Dorset

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.


This October (2019) I'll be running all four Bournemouth marathon festival events one after the other, raising funds to improve the sports facilities at my children's school.

On Saturday the 5th, I'll be running in the 10km race and then the 5km race. Then on Sunday the 6th, I'll be running the half marathon before being escorted back to the start line in time to run the full marathon.

Regular activity and movement is important for children at school for a wide number of reasons but importantly, it enhances physical and mental well-being in a number of ways. The outdoor sports facilities at Moordown St John's Primary school will be greatly improved as a result of this investment that will feature a sports pitch and running track that can be used all year round. In addition to the cover photo on this page, here is an impression of how it will look (given and authorised by headteacher, Mr Herbert):

And here are the dimensions:

Funding for school facilities can be sparse currently, for sporting facilities in particular, yet the value of such facilities is incredible when you consider the benefits that will be enjoyed by the school children for years to come.

If you are based in or around Bournemouth and would like to join me for any of my early morning training runs each week, then get in touch. Likewise, if you'd like to join me to run in any of the races on the day, let me know, you'll be very welcome indeed. If you are a school parent, you may be interested to know that I'll be speaking in an assembly after the Summer talking to the pupils about this event (and the mental resilience required for it) and we'll be organising a competition for the children to design a running t-shirt logo for the t-shirt that I'll be running in and that we'll also be selling as part of our fundraising.

If you are local, do consider coming out to support us on the day, and give a much needed cheer!

I'm going to be organising a number of fundraising activities through my professional field, if you have been directed to this page as a result of any of those initiatives, please add the required amount of sponsorship and remember to ensure you give your name and email address so that I can send you on confirmation and details.

Any amount of sponsorship will be greatly appreciated and will go towards this wonderful initiative, thank you!

      The opportunity to physically play and learn through exercise and sport is important for all of us but especially for children. Good luck with your fund raising efforts.
