£2,900raised of £5,000 target by 39 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to show our appreciation for the support the Friends of Queen Mary's Hospital provided to Kevin's stroke recovery

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.


On the 27th - 28th June 2018 the Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) Asset Allocation Team will be walking (and some running) the London Capital Ring Walk in support of our colleague Kevin Chessum!

Kevin's story

Towards the end of 2017, our colleague and valued team member Kevin Chessum suffered from a stroke.

Kevin has always been a lively and active colleague, friend, father and partner who enjoyed life - whether it was acting, running after a rounders ball or joining in for a couple of beers he would be there!

As with many stroke victims, the road to recovery for Kevin has been a slow one. But Kevin has always been a fighter and he's made a lot of progress in the last few months.

He has spent the majority of his rehabilitation time in Queen Mary's Hospital regaining his mobility. He is now finally able to move with the aid of a stick and is back home for the remainder of his recovery.


To show our appreciation for the support Kevin has received with his rehabilitation, the team wanted to do their bit to raise money to help other stroke survivors.

Through our Capital Ring 4 Kevin Chessum event(#CR4KC), we're fundraising to support Stroke UK and the Friends of Queen Mary's Hospital.

Use the button to donate to our Friends of Queen Mary's Hospital.

How else can I help?

We'll be posting updates on LinkedIN and Twitter using the hastag #CR4KC in the run up to the big event. If would really help us if you're able to help us by liking, sharing and re-tweeting these posts to raise as much awareness and money for our charities.

We are also fundraising for Stroke UK as part of this walk - you can visit their page here:
