£450raised of £500 target by 20 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to be split equally for Priestley Smith school (for visually impaired children) and Cancer Research.

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 am raising money for two charities close to my heart:

1. Priestley smith school - this is a school for visually impaired children and is where our cousin Oscar attends. Oscar is only 7 and was diagnosed last year with early-onset retinal dystrophy. At the moment he still has some sight but is likely to lose this completely at some point. He has been very brave, and started this brand new school full time in January this year. They are already doing fabulous things with Oscar that more closely meet his needs, but they could do with more money to continue this great work.

2. Cancer research - too many people in our lives have lost their lives to this terrible disease, including Auntie Elaine most recently. I want to do my bit and help them find a cure for this horrid disease.

So... what am I going to do to raise money? I am running (just call me forrest gump!)...

24 March - Coventry half marathon

7 April - Manchester marathon

11 May - Dukeries 40 mile ultra-marathon (Sherwood Forest)

Rather than ask for donations for each event, i’m doing it all in one this year, so please give generously.

Thank you

Over the last three years I have taken up running and this year is my most challenging year for races I’ve entered. I’ve raised over £2000 so far and this year I hope to add significantly to that. Each charity I support is always close to our hearts.
