Weʼre raising £25,000 to to fund the vital work of Connex Community Support and Buxton Street By Street to ensure they can continue to help people in need
- Buxton, Derbyshire
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.
We have raised the sum of £2410 off line to be added to the sum shown above .... thank you all so very much for your support.
WE NEED HELP
As the impact of the Corona Virus on our community begins to be understood it is clear the support needed for the health, well being and welfare of the people of Buxton and the surrounding villages is enormous. Organisations delivering voluntary and paid for services will be overwhelmed if we do not help them and to do that we need to raise funds.
RIDING OUT OF LOCKDOWN
The Peak District National Park presents some of the most challenging terrain for mountain bikers in England. As a focus of the fund raising, Alan Thompson aged 75, inspired by Captain Tom, will attempt to ride all 19 Enduros, described in Peak Trails as big, tough rides ... challenging routes that you might describe as a bit of a beast. Alan's plan is to literally GET ON HIS BIKE to try and get us all motivated to raise money to help our community whilst bringing attention, publicity and hopefully much needed visitor numbers to the stunning area in which we live.
HELP US TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY
The intention is to raise the funding to help our community organisations continue with their great work. You can help by sponsoring a ride, spreading the word, offering support to help in our fundraising efforts or simply making a donation.
