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.

Story

The staff of Baslow St Anne's CofE Primary School are incredibly committed and inspiring. But like all schools, they are constrained by funding. I am raising money to provide the children with an outdoor activity centre (seating, soft play/activity area, cooking area, sandpit, chicken coop) to energise the children between lessons.

For my part, I am doing a year-long triathlon challenge: swimming, running and cycling 1km for every hour of the year. That's 8,760km: around 200km of swimming (the equivalent of Baslow to Newcastle, as the crow flies), 1,000km of running (Land's End to John O'Groats) and 7,560km of cycling (Baslow to Goa in India).

To give me something to aim for, I’ll also be competing in a Swimathon (the 10k Great North Swim), some cycling sportives (the Midlands Monster, the Peaks Tour Epic and the Matlock Top 10) and a couple of runs (the Sheffield Half Marathon and the Chatsworth 10k); bringing the three disciplines of triathlon together with a half ironman (the Ultimate half) and two full Ironman competitions (the Outlaw and the JurassicMan); so long as I can avoid injury.

I have a blog describing my progress (training and competitions) here .
