    Weʼve raised £780 to support Edwards Trust Charity

    Funded on Monday, 18th September 2017

    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.


    Why am I raising funds for Edwards Trust Charity when there are so many worthy causes out there?????

    The answer is easy...... as a family man, the value of our loved-ones is one I never take for granted! Edwards Trust supports children and families who are facing loss and surviving bereavement. They are a truly unique charity dedicated to supporting families during the most difficult time in their lives.

    I have got to know this wonderful charity, Edwards Trust, over the last year and have been moved to see the remarkable work they do with families when the worst possible situation arises. They are always there for everybody, and should the worst happen to you, or your loved ones, then knowing there is someone who can support you, is vital.

    Edwards Trust needs to raise funds regularly to enable this support to continue, and I would like your help please!!!!!........... I will be running the Timberhonger 10k in Bromsgrove on Saturday 1st July and also abseiling down 170ft of the Hampton by Hilton Hotel on Broad Street, Birmingham on Saturday 16th September. For those of you that know me, you'll know that these are not activities I do everyday. I'll need all the support I can get to help me through these challenges. Please... please... please... show your support by sponsoring me, no matter how small the amount. With you behind me I know we can make a real difference.

    All you need to know about Edward's Trust...

    Edward’s Trust, set up in 1989 by Peter and Hilary Dent in memory of their son Edward, who died aged 7 of cancer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.  Edward’s Trust provides holistic family bereavement services supporting children, young people and parents across the West Midlands. Services include one-to-one counselling, support groups, specialist respite bereavement retreats, children’s social activities, a wellbeing service and now supports over 600 families every year.

    Please give generously... Thank you!
