Weʼve raised £2,450 to help Blossoms Legacy, a drowning prevention charity that has touched everyone of us xx
- Atherton, United Kingdom
- Funded on Saturday, 21st October 2017
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 the 7th October 2017 myself and a group of 11 friends have decided to take on the challenge of the Yorkshire 3 peaks. We will take on the peaks of peny-ghent , ingleborough and whernside and the route is 25 miles long with a 5,200ft ascent. If this wasn't enough we also have to complete all this in under 12 hours.
Nobody within our group knows Blossom or her family directly but heard of her tragic story through a mutual friend. Her story has touched each and everyone of us and we would like to take up the challange in honour of Blossom and her family.
Kris and Vicky have vowed to ensure Blossom's death would not be in vain. Together with trustee's they have created a charity in Blossom's name called Blossom's legacy. Blossom's legacy is a registered charity which is dedicated to children, teaching water safety in a classroom environment and at local swimming pools. Blossom's legacy aims to teach adults and carers CPR and other life saving skills.
We (Smudger, Nez, Vinny ,Mike, Parky , Trav, Scott , Russ, Joff, Jonesy , Walshey, Paddy) hope to support Blossom's legacy by completing our challenge and we would like to raise as much money as possible to give Kris and Vicky as much support as we can and help them deliver their cause to the children of our communities.
Please help us raise as much as we can. 🦄🌸💜
