    Weʼve raised £860 to Help raise awareness and to fund ongoing research into Melanoma (Skin Cancer)

    Buxton, Derbyshire, UK
    Funded on Monday, 1st October 2018

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    So My annual charity event is fast approaching and I'm hoping to raise as much as possible to help raise awareness and help fund the ongoing research into Skin Cancer.

    18 months ago, on 26th December 2016, my brave younger brother Warren, passed away from Cancer. What started off as a small mole on his shoulder, developed into a serious form of Melanoma which spread through his body, eventually ending his battle on Boxing day. As many of you know, my brother and his wife Teresa, lived and worked in Thailand and in September 2017, I flew over and ran the Thailand Half marathon, with his wife and some of his close friends, and from it, raised over £1,500 for Melanoma UK.

    On 20th August this year, I will be taking my bike into France where I aim to cycle to 2 largest mountain ranges, which are used regulary in the Tour de France. I will be riding Alpe D'huez and Mt Ventoux within 3 days of each other, together with some other smaller mountains over the 2 and a half weeks I'll be there.

    Melanoma is such a terrible form of cancer, a cancer which can sometimes be just dismissed because it looks just like a mole, yet skin cancer causes the highest amount of deaths between the ages of 10 and 40yrs.

    Please please please, dig deep for this great and worthwhile cause and keep the memory and legacy of my wonderful and brave brother alive.


    Thank you so much x

      So the crowdfunding page has now come to an end and I would like to thank, from the bottom of my heart, everyone who has so generously given to this fantastic cause and charity. Through the page and separate donations, we have raised £1,056 pounds. I will continue to raise awareness and carry on the memory and legacy of my wonderful and brave brother, and hope one day, through the dedication and hard work of Melanoma UK, that we can find a cure for this terrible disease. Thank you so much again to you all x

      Hi everyone. As most of you know I returned from France having succesfully completed my goal of cycling some of France's highest mountains in cluding Alpe d'huez and Mt Ventoux. I would like to thank everyone who made a donation, wished me well and even said I was mad. This along with the desire to do it for my brother made it all worth it. The funding finishes on the 1st October, so please, if you haven't already done so, visit the page and make just the smallest of donations as every one will make a massive difference. Thank you again.
