Weʼve raised £2,275 to Sponsors for a bike ride in memory of Big brother Leigh Bennett!
- Swadlincote / Burton On Trent
- Funded on Monday, 12th August 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Can not thank you all enough for the support and donations that this has received so far! We can not believe the target was smashed in 45 minutes for the money Ellie wanted to raise for her flowers! I can't tell you how proud she will be! Any further monies raised will be going straight to Leigh's darling daughter Sienna ❤️ who Leigh absolutely adored and would do anything for!
Sadly Leigh passed away unexpectedly on friday, as you can imagine we are all absolutely heartbroken and devastated. Leigh was a much loved Son, Father, Big Brother and Friend to all that knew him and he did not deserve to be taken away from us all at just 29 years old! 💔. What know one can take away from us all is that Leigh was such a happy, fun loving guy that never failed to make people smile!
Ellie is Leigh's young sister, at just 12 years old she has really struggled to deal with the devastating news. Ellie has asked me to set up this page for her so that she can gain sponsors on order to raise money to keep her big brothers memory alive! She wants to raise the money to buy her Big Brother a BROTHER flower tribute for his funeral. This will help Ellie massively! It will give her something positive to focus on and help her deal with Leigh's death!
Ellie is going to cycle the distance of a full Marathon and go even further taking her to around 30miles! We will all be there to support her and everyone is welcome on the day to celebrate Leigh's life ❤️.
We aren't asking for much, all we are asking for is if you could just sponsor £1. If you can't sponsor, even just a share to your friends and family would be greatly appreciated! Please spread the word and give Ellie the chance to do this! Thank you xx
