£1,680raised of £2,000 target by 50 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,680 to remember Brian Lockley and support charities close to him

    Funded on Sunday, 30th September 2018

    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.


    Brian died in January 2017. A close friend of ours, his death was a huge blow because he had battled cancer with such determination and courage. During his illness, he also supported others, including the Teenage Cancer Trust. He was looked after by East Cheshire Hospice during his last days.

    In honour of his fight, I am going to raise money in his memory. For those of you who know me, the idea of camping is not one of my favourites and I am far from outdoorsy. Going way out of my comfort zone, I am climbing Kilimanjaro with my friend Rebecca Lees in September and would really like to make it to £2000.

    Please give generously to remember this lovely man and to do something wonderful in his name.

      Update from the Page owner

      I am totally in awe of the support shown in helping to remember Brian. There was a point on the mountain on summit day, around 4am, when I wasn’t sure I could continue. I had picked up a chesty cold and was finding breathing difficult. I couldn’t really eat or drink and was exhausted. Knowing why I was doing it, and almost chanting ‘Brian, my kids’ with ever step kept me going. It has been the most challenging, humbling and rewarding experience. Thank you for believing in me.
