Weʼre raising £1,000 to Supporting our local organisations, St Catherine’s Hospice, Derian House Children’s Hospice and Rainbow House by walking 21 miles.
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.
After being in and seeing these organisations, St Catherine's Hospice, Rainbow House, and Derian House Children's Hospice, it inspires me to fundraise and get more involved. The work that they do and the job that they do in creating an environment where it brings families together and takes the pressure of there loved ones for hours up to days is unbelievable. The help and support they can offer in these places is endless. A truly great job they all do.
