£115raised of £500 target by 6 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to complete the Canterbury Half Marathon in aid of the Burgess Hodgson Charities of the Year 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.


On Monday 27th August, 9 Burgess Hodgson staff: Gabriella Carboneri, Emily Fairburn, Connor Harney, Tom Saltmer , Rhiannon Field, Ellie Richardson , Matt Jones , Lloyd Taylor , and Aaron Shorter, will be attempting to complete the Canterbury Half Marathon.

The course is challenging and covers the quiet country lanes on the outskirts of the city, but all are hungry to put themselves through it in aid of the 3 BH charities.

This year Burgess Hodgson have chosen three charities to support throughout the year. These are:

Catching Lives | An independent charity aimed at supporting the rough sleepers, homeless and vulnerably housed in Canterbury and East Kent; those who have, for many reasons, fallen through the gaps in society and feel they have nowhere else to turn.

The Canterbury and District Samaritans | A self-funding branch of Samaritans. Samaritan’s vision is that fewer people die by suicide. They work to achieve this vision by making it their mission to alleviate emotional distress and reduce the incidence of suicidal feelings and behaviour.

The Canterbury Umbrella Centre | A Charity Community Centre that is open to everybody and particularly provides support to people with mental health problems. Umbrella is located in a purpose-built Centre designed as a place where people can come and feel welcomed and supported.

To support these charities, or if you want to give some (much needed) moral support, we welcome you to donate to the Burgess Hodgson crowdsourcing fund. The money raised will be divided equally between the three charities.
