    Weʼve raised £330 to Start a new Came To Believe Retreat in Minsteracres, County Durham. This is a weekend for people suffering from addictions.

    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've already raised £600 to start a new retreat at Minsteracres October 27-29th 2017 and would like to try and get to £1000. This is a 12 Step weekend and is a life changing experience for people suffering from addictions. Come and walk through the 12 steps the way the founders of AA did back in 1935 and learn how to recover.
    It would be wonderful to be able to provide free places to some who are broken by their addiction that they had lost their family, home, job etc so that they could come and start to get well.
    The cost of the retreat is £135 and that includes all meals and accommodation.
    In order to try and fundraise I am walking 36 Wainwrights....The Far Eastern Fells with my husband, Gavin and black Labrador, Basil. We

    Today we climbed Kidsty Pike, The Knott, Rampsgill Head and High Raise completing the 36 Far Eastern Fells. I did not like Hill walking a year ago but for the sake of helping others I decided to get stuck in and have grown to absolutely love it. Please help us if you can.
