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.


the equivilent of Exmoor nowdonia So50 mles with over 13.6K feet climbeQuarterm completing 12 challenges in 12 months (see below for the challenges) to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Ellie Baker & Save the Rhino's

Ellie is my sister in law and had her son abducted from Portugal 18 months ago and taken to Spain by his father. Ellis is fighting to get him back through the international courts to ensure the safe return of my nephew and to be reunited with his brother. As you can imagine, this is incredibly expensive. Every little I can help raise for her will see my nephew and Ellie's son brought home to our family safely.

My eldest Son has had a couple of operations at Great Ormond Street Hospital including reconstructive surgery on his ear. GOS hospital is AMAZING and they work they do is phenomenal. I would love to raise some money to help cover a small portion of the costs they face each day to do the amazing work they do

Finally, I am raising money for Save the Rhino's after seeing the distressing picture at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition in order to help do everything we can to protect these amazing animals. My son Noah inspired me to do this one...
