    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.


    Dear Friends,

    I'd like to help raise funds for our local winter night shelter and so I’m going to do the Great South Run on Sunday October 21st, please will you spur me on with sponsorship for this essential cause?

    Last year St Mary's church became part of scheme offering a hearty meal and a warm hall to sleep in, for people experiencing homelessness in Richmond Borough, with the charity Glass Door.

    The scheme runs during the coldest months from Nov to March, ensuring that every evening, there is somewhere warm and friendly to be for up to 20 people, who would otherwise struggle to find shelter and support. It’s volunteer run, and by all sorts of wonderful people, the guests are delightful and in genuine need.

    The food for each night costs £50, for both dinner and breakfast - so with every tenner you donate, together we can feed 4 people 2 meals. St Mary's will run 24 sessions, so the target is £1,200.

    Each £10 after that would buy an extra roll mat or go towards the amazing work Glass Door does in enabling people to establish more stable and positive lives - like the 80 guests who found work last year or the 188 who moved into housing.

    Thanks so very much for whatever you can give. In return I promise that I will run and run and run and not walk one little bit!

    Anne xx

      A last thank you - and a little medal pic. It was a very hot but wonderful experience and I was massively encouraged by your generosity. For those who like a stat, I placed 9645th out of 24,000, did the 10 miles / 16km in a reasonable (for my age sadly) 1H44M, consumed 5 and a half sweets (during) and two quesadillas (after). ...if we hit £1,500 I might provide a photo of my lovely post run face - so do keep spreading the word about the shelter! Love, peace & jelly babies to you all, Anne x

      Just reassuring you all with a pic that I’m carb loading as you can see - (as I am most Friday nights to be fair). The main thing though is to say a huge thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us to reach the £1,200 target - that’s totally amazing! Your money will provide dinner and breakfast for 20 people 24 times this Winter - and you are all massive superstars for stepping up. I just need to actually do the run on Sunday now - and I promise to post a sweaty pic to prove I did. Thank you again. Anne.

      My race number has arrived! I’m only up to 12k though - a mere 5k short - am redoubling efforts immediately! Thanks for all your support in this. Please share my page if you can - amazingly we’re 60% of the way to covering food costs for the shelter for 5 months! But it would be tremendous to cover it all. And if you’d like a flavour of what your money will enable you can read ‘A night with Glassdoor’
