£2,030raised of £6,000 target by 73 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,030 to benefit six separate charities who supported us and Daniel 10 years ago. We are climbing Mount Snowdon in memory of him.

    South East, England
    Funded on Sunday, 15th October 2017

    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.


    This year we have chosen to challenge ourselves by climbing/walking up Mount Snowdon in memory of our son Daniel, who died ten years ago of a rare brain stem tumour aged just 11 months. He was a happy, smiley baby who inspired many, many people.
    We have chosen six of the charities (one each!) who have helped us on our journey over the last ten years. They are Demelza House Children's Hospice, King's College Hospital (TC5 and Lion Ward), Ronald McDonald House, The Salvation Army, The Child Death Helpline and Pembury Hospital (Children's ward).
    We have also been receiving money from family members over the years and this will be going towards buying one or two 'Sensory-in-a-suitcase' (portable sensory equipment) for Rainbow Trust - another charity who provided us with vital support and continues to help families with seriously ill children.
    We will be completing our Snowdon challenge sometime during the week beginning 29th July - weather will dictate the day we actually go up!!
    The Snowdon Team so far are:

    Richard Bourlet - Dear family friend, travelling all the way from Geneva
    James Cailes - Susannah's brother and a late entry John - James' friend
    Amanda, Chris and Evie Doe - Susannah's sister, brother-in-law & niece
    Colin and Jane Mildwater - Friends from our village (Jane-support crew!)
    Robert, Louise, Bethany and Naomi Wickenden - Louise has been a friend of Susannah since 1972!
    ....and of course, Richard, Susannah, Thomas, Hannah, Lydia & Faith and Messy Marvin!!

      Our fundraising afternoon at The Dovecote Inn in Capel went very well. The band Dovestock, who perform fortnightly on a Monday evening, kindly offered to collect money for our Snowdon challenge. So we went along to spend a lovely sunny afternoon on bank holiday Monday listening to the band whilst Lydia and Faith went round with buckets collecting donations, there was a raffle too! £218 were raised in a few hours. Thank you Dovestock (great gig) and The Dovecote Inn, we had a super afternoon, relaxing in the sun enjoying the music.

      Richard and Bethany were blown through the door next which was a blessing as we needed the picnic! Yes we had picnics at 1085m! Trying to eat sandwiches whilst your teeth are chattering and your arms are shaking is interesting!!!! Finally we applauded the 3 remaining Wickeden's as they came through the door to complete our team. Little Naomi was a shivering, soggy 5 yr old, who was quickly changed and handed a welcoming hot choc. We were so thankful the rescue train (for café staff!) was delayed, it gave us time to warm up and plan our descent!

    We are Team Strawson - Richard, Susannah, Thomas, Hannah, Lydia and Faith. We are remembering our little Daniel, who died ten years ago of a rare brain stem tumour. We are hoping to raise much needed funds for several of the charities who have helped and supported our journey.
