    Weʼve raised £1,265 to Raise money for 'Paws to Unwind"

    Godalming, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 11th November 2018

    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'm raising money for a project called Paws to Unwind in memory of my cousin, James Campbell-Laing who tragically passed away in January 2017 aged 19.

    Starting on Monday 23rd July I'm going to be swimming at Godalming Leisure Centre and I'm going to be swimming 25km!

    Paws to Unwind is a project which occurs at Furman University, the Uni James attended in Greenville, South Carolina, funded by The James Campbell-Laing Foundation.

    The aim of the programme is to provide compassionate pet therapy visits on campus, with the aim of reducing stress and anxiety students may be experiencing. This is a fitting tribute to James who, like many others, was diagnosed several years ago with generalized anxiety and also chronic sleep issues. He was also an ardent dog lover and adored his two cocker spaniels Buffy and Remy.

    It's amazing that society and the world is becoming increasingly aware of mental health issues.

    'Paws to Unwind' through the Greenville Humane Society, provides on average 7 dogs per month for two hours on campus. The program began on 7 September 2017 and has been really successful!

      The swim went so well! I managed a lot more than i expected yesterday which meant that I finished at 12.15pm this afternoon. In total I swam the 25km, 1000 lengths, in jusy under 12 hours of swimming. Thank you all so much for the generous donations and words of support. I'm knackered now but so pleased I did it!
