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.
At the start of March this year my brother Joe and a group of friends are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for the charity Mind. They‘re aiming to raise £50,000 and I want to help them.
I have committed to taking part in the Devizes half marathon on Sunday 7 April. For me this is a huge challenge as I haven’t done any running since I was a teenager. But I am determined to do it and training is well underway.
If I can raise £500, it will be doubled by Utility Warehouse, the company I’m partnered with... adding £1000 to the grand total.
So I need your help. I’m asking you to donate a few pounds towards my cause. All money raised will go straight to Mind, a charity that is very close to my heart and does some amazing work across the UK.
Thank you so much for your support. You can keep track of my training and the race itself on my Facebook page.
