Weʼre raising £500 to Fund CALM and the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust in the memory of two Matthews.
- London, United Kingdom
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.
Unfortunately two young men, both called Matthew did not make 2018 alongside the rest of us. They left under very different circumstances, but for both, their friends and family have been left shattered.
CALM supports the mental health of young men who are often in the most desperate, yet hidden, need. Help them to support more people in hindering them from making the worst decision of their life. https://www.thecalmzone.net/
The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust helps bring loved ones back to their family home in Ireland from across the world, taking the stress and upset of their families having to plan this difficult journey along side their funeral. https://kevinbellrepatriationtrust.com/
I will be running the Copenhagen Half Marathon in September 2018. All money raised will be split equally between these two great causes. Both trying to keep families together even if it through different outcomes. In loving memory of Matt Wilson, a friend missed by many, let's get support for those who feel as he did. And in loving memory of Matthew Bradley, who's fiance is one of my oldest friends and for now can only wish for other families to be treated with the respect she was by the repatriation trust.
Unfortunately I cannot set up a page to directly fund both at the same time, so I will ensure funds will be transferred in equal measure to both charities. A receipt or similar will be posted to show your money has been correctly received by both.

About the fundraiser
London, United Kingdom
Lost two friends and all I'm good at is running (even that is questionable!). Have put the two together to get some frustration out, put some good into the world, and hopefully support the efforts to help as many people as possible.
