    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Stobart Rail launched its new Health and Safety campaign at Lochardil Primary School in Inverness during April 2016.

    I was completely blown away by the professionalism of the teaching staff and the warm and caring nature of the pupils. We spent a day in school and it left a big impression on me, so I decided I wanted to help the school.

    After speaking with the Headmistress we decided that support for their school infrastructure improvement programme (funded by donations)would be very well received and any money I raised the school would share with Highland Hospice and MFR Cash for Kids.

    A challenge was required and the Baxter's Loch Ness Marathon on the 25th September provided the ideal opportunity to demonstrate that I, supported by Stobart Rail would go the extra mile for the school and their chosen charity partners.

    If you could please sponsor me to run the marathon it would mean a great deal to Lochardil Primary School, Highland Hospice and MFR Cash for kids.

    Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and an extra big thank you to any donations received - it will help me to kick on when my already ageing legs begin to complain during the 26.2 miles of the marathon.

    Warm Regards

    Andrew Sumner

      All the long training runs completed and I am now in the tapering section of my training, 7 miles completed this morning and 4 more shortish runs to go before the bid day. Thanks for all your support, without it I would simply fall over!!! Hope to see you on the 25th at the finish line with a pint and a smile!
