Weʼre raising £400 to help fund my daughter Bryony’s trip to Lourdes
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.

I want to raise money to help fund my daughter Bryonys school trip to Lourdes in May 2019. Bryony will be going as part of a group and taking part in all the services and celebrations that Lourdes has to offer. She will have some training so that she can also help out in a hospital while she is there. This trip for my daughter is very important to me. When i was 16 I went to lourdes as part of a school trip. I recall meeting a young man as we arrived and being struck by his words and the strength of his emotion for the place. I remember laughing this off. I was a kid, I was just happy to be away from home on a weeks holiday in the South of France. However, after my week in Lourdes I knew exactly what he meant. The place, the sense of togetherness, faith and belief is incredible. I want Bryony to experience this and so I have decided to take the plunge and get Fit and ask you lovely people to help me by ‘Just giving’. The funds have to be paid by the end of March 2019 so my plan is to be able to run 5k and lose 2 stone by 22/3/19. Ive attended slimming groups before so know what to do. In fact im going to donate the weekly fee to the fundraising cause. With regard to the running I plan to start with the Couch to 5k app and see where that leads!! im very hopeful and motivated for this challenge. Ive tried to lose weight before but always give in to that little voice which says ‘Have that biscuit, nobody will be looking at you anyway’. Ironically you could all be looking at me...so no more biscuits!! Thankyou for reading and supporting me in any way you can
