£1,290raised of £1,000 target by 75 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,290 to Raise enough money to help Louise, who is currently fighting breast cancer, and her family have a break away together.

    Funded on Monday, 26th December 2016

    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.


    This story begins in 1991, where 8 girls started their high school life, little did any of us know that we would become such good friends that it was like gaining 7 sisters. 25 years later and nothing much has changed......can't even say we have 'matured' as the years may suggest, we get together now and still laugh, joke & giggle like a set of teenagers.

    So imagine receiving the devastating news that one of our friends has got breast cancer, I've never felt such an overwhelming feeling of sadness, thousands of memories came flooding back and all I could think of was how this could happen to our lovely wonderful friend.

    At 36 years old, with 3 children, aged 5, 13 & 17.......life can be so unfair.

    Now the fight begins.......Louise has started chemotherapy, and we know that she will fight this with everything she's got, with her family & friends right there beside her.

    I can only begin to imagine how difficult this is for Louise, her husband and her children. So simply we need to give them all something to look forward to during this terrible time.

    Our mission! Is to raise enough money for Louise, Chris & the kids to go away for a few days so they can spend some time together as a family & leave cancer behind at home......something I am sure you will agree they all need & deserve.

    Our battle begins on 27th November where myself, Rebecca and my step-mum Anne will be taking part in the Barnsley 10k........with a little over 3 weeks to go training has begun, so I am kindly asking you all to donate as much or as little as you can, I know that times are hard, but giving as little as £1 will make all the difference.

    If we don't achieve our target after the 10k we won't be stopping there, our battle will continue with more fund raising until we are able to give Louise and her family a little something to look forward to.

    Thank you all for reading our story xxx
