£135raised of £100 target by 9 supporters

    Weʼve raised £135 to to raise funds additional activities and treats for the elderly at Lostock Lodge Care Home, Northwich.

    Funded on Tuesday, 29th January 2019

    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 elderly in society get forgotten about because we all wear out as we get old. We can suffer from dementia, painful joints etc. etc. People need to be inspired to keep active or at the very least occupied rather than sit around all day getting bored feeling as though they have been forgotten about or ignored.

    I want to raise some additional funds to help make their lives more interesting and give them opportunities to do something more.

    Until May this year I hadn't done any exercise for years and when told I needed to lose weight for health reasons I set about doing something positive to lose weight. I been swimming most days of the week training to complete a mile no stop in under an hour doing breast stroke. Up until now I have lost just under 3 stone and have got my swimming speed to a point where I m completing 25 metres in under 50 seconds.
    I am seeking sponsors to raise money for the care home. I intend to complete the 1 mile non stop swim in under 1 hour on the 29th November.
    Your support will be greatly appreciated.
