    Weʼve raised £1,390 to To support Refugee ReSETTLEment Community Sponsorship of a Syrian family

    Funded on Thursday, 18th April 2019

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I am running the Three Peaks of Yorkshire on 18th January 2019, my 67th birthday, to raise money for the Refugee ReSETTLEment Community Sponsorship Group in Settle. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the scale of the refugee crisis - but there is something practical we can do. This is an initiative by local community volunteers to help a Syrian refugee family settle and flourish in the UK.

    If you'd like to know more about the initiative please contact

    or look at our Facebook page Refugee ReSETTLEment Group

      Finally the report! Firstly a BIG thank you to everyone who donated -I have done far better than I dared hope: your generosity is amazing. The run itself could not have been better. There were 6 of us running and we kept each other going despite the cold. We were lucky with the weather as the boggy bits were frozen and it only started snowing as we came off the last hill. Thanks to my fellow runners and our wonderful support team.

      One day to go. ironically the weather today has been glorious unlike the forecast for tomorrow afternoon! Fingers crossed that my left knee holds up ok and that it isn't too icy on the tops. A big thank you to all of you for your generous donations - I am very grateful. My apologies for not thanking you all sooner but I have had a problem with the JustGiving page, which has only just been resolved. A full report with photos will appear here - but not tomorrow; I shall be having a birthday drink or too!
