    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

    I am running the New Forest Marathon on the 10th September 2017 to raise money for the fund set up in my brothers name - The Chris Maclure Foundation.

    The marathon takes place 10 years to the day that Chris lost his life in a road traffic accident, aged just 21.

    Chris was football mad from a young age. I remember taking him up to the school playground for a kick about when he was growing up - he loved it and was a big Everton fan. Throughout his teens Chris enjoyed success playing for both his school and local youth football teams. Chris had a great sense of humour and is hugely missed by all of his friends and family.

    Fittingly the Chris Maclure Foundation aims to encourage, develop and support young people who want to become involved in football coaching or refereeing. This support is offered by way of funding for FA coaching or refereeing qualifications or the purchase of essential equipment.

    Literally hundreds of young people have benefited either directly or indirectly from the foundation over the last 10 years. To date over £25,000 has been raised and redistributed by way of grants and funding.

    Chris would be immensely proud that so many young people have benefitted and continue to benefit from funds raised in his name.

      Evening All - I have just deposited a huge £445 into the bank account for our Chris's foundation. I was blown away by everybody's generosity in sponsoring me for the New Forest Marathon. So a massive THANK YOU to everyone!! These funds come on the back of £550 raised over the summer by our Ian's sponsored beard growing shenanigans. He successfully grew the longest beard in Saudi (Quite an achievement!). All funds raised have gone into the account and will fund grass roots footballing initiatives. Our Chris would be very proud! Thank You

      Well...almost there now. By this time tomorrow I should be finished, refuelled and half way home - Optimistic? OK I may be sprawled on a treatment table! :-) Before the run I want to say a HUGE THANKYOU to everybody that has made a pledge to Christopher's foundation. It is really appreciated by our family but more importantly it makes a real difference to many young people involved in grassroots football. We know this because they regularly feedback their appreciation! It wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for you - Chris would be proud xx
