    Weʼve raised £250 to Raise funds to help Oesophagoose, a charity based at the RVI in Newcastle, in memory of my lovely Mam

    Funded on Tuesday, 13th November 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.

    Story

    It's been 3 and a half years since I lost my Mam to Oesophageal Cancer and since then my Dad has been fund raising for 'Oesophagoose' which is a local charity for Oesophageal cancer based at the RVI in Newcastle.

    By hosting events, auctions, raffles, singing, telling jokes and selling CDs, he's raised over £11,000 to date.

    It's 8 weeks until the next charity event so what I am proposing is to ask for people to sponsor me in abstinence for that 8 week period.

    Starting on Sunday 15th July, this is a period that will include the World Cup Final, my wedding anniversary, 8 whole weekends and my fortnight's summer holiday, but despite this my plan is to abstain from the following for the 8 whole weeks:

    Alcohol , Caffeine, Chocolate, Crisps and Takeaways !

    It's gonna be hell folks but hopefully you'll agree that it's for a good cause.

    If you'd like to support me in this ridiculous and quite daunting venture, I would be grateful for any support or donations (however small, it all adds up!)

    Thanks everyone

    Chris

      The total amount raised between us all is £560.00!! Which is £10 for every day of abstinence and i'm absolutely thrilled. Thanks so much to you all for your kindness and support. I couldn't have done it without you. Cheers - Chris

      Hi everyone. Well, I've done it! 8 weeks (or 56 days!) through my holidays, wedding anniversary and various other celebrations I've remained alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, crisps and takeaway-free! The best news is that the £250 raised on this page is only half the story. I've got a physical sponsor sheet too and there's plenty more there too.
