    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

    Christina, her 8 year old daughter Tyra, 3 year old granddaughter and elderly mother Zifa, live in Zimbabwe. They are friends of my parents and we are trying to help them. Zifa's home was virtually destroyed and they have been forced to move to the township. Christina has been diagnosed with TB and HIV and is too ill most of the time to enable her to earn a living to look after these 2 little girls. The corruption in their country means the Drs and Nurses steal drugs and sell them privately at a very high price, so there is barely any medication available to her.
    My dad, is visiting Zimbabwe in January, to help Christina and her girls get back in their home. The local church have offered him help with accommodation, a vehicle and and tradesmen, but to do this he needs to raise about £3000 in total. Please help him in his extremely brave quest, my girls and I will do what we can with our fund raising, but your help is really appreciated x

      Well done to everyone involved. To the amazing children who are obviously WAY fitter than me, all of those who helped on the day, and of course the wonderful people who donated money! Thank you! We raised a grand total of £1386! Which is going to 'massively' help out Christina's family in Zimbabwe.

      Wow these kids ran their socks off today, and nearly killed me in the process. Well done to this fab bunch for running 5.2km with the winning bunch crossing the finish line in only 28mins. Please reward their fantastic efforts by sponsoring them x
