Weʼve raised £920 to Andover VIPs by completing another CoolLED Duathlon!
- Andover, United Kingdom
- Funded on Friday, 22nd September 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.
It’s really key to support your local community and help anyway you can, to make people’s lives better. This year we have chosen the Andover VIPs charity as they really are local to us here in Andover . Please help us raise as much as possible by sponsoring us to complete a duathlon (cycle & run) on Friday 15th September!!
