    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.


    I've never run a half-marathon race before.

    Before last year, I'd never even run any proper distance at all.

    In March 2015 I took up running in earnest.

    Just before Christmas I ran my first 10k race (the very hilly Denby Dale Six, in the northern foothills of the Peak District) and completed the distance in my best ever time - just over 54mins.

    This Sunday, in Carlisle, I'll be racing over twice that distance in my very first half-marathon race - The Great Cumbrian Run.

    If I can find 200 people to sponsor me £5 each, this will raise £1000 for the #HandsOffHRI Campaign.

    Please share this message, please sponsor me £5, please support me in running my first ever half-marathon and... please support Greater Huddersfield.

    Because a population area of a quarter of a million people - a medium-sized city by any other definition - needs and deserves a full service hospital with a full Emergency Care unit.

    Just £5. Thank you.
