£300raised of £1,500 target by 16 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to raise funds for Jacob Willett to help life stay as normal as possible whilst he receives his cancer treatment.

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.


Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose

So Jacob now has to receive a long 6 week stint of treatments between the Christie in Manchester and Manchester Childrens' Hospital.

Your donations will help them live as normal a life as possible during this time living away from home, minimising time on motorways and maximising recovery time between sessions for Jacob.

Thank you everyone that has donated so far - you are stars.

I am running the Lakeland 100 on the weekend of the 28th of July - this is a 105 mile circuit of the Lakes from Coniston with 22,495ft of climbing. I get 40 hours to complete it but it will be a hell of a trek.

Training has been good but the recent heat has been tricky - my choice and done in a weekend. Nice to make it mean so much more help Jacob.

My crowd funding page is in addition to Ness and Mark's - nothing will be withdrawn until needed and Mark and Ness will keep you all posted. This unique link for my run just makes it easier to track.

Thank you, Dave

The picture is me and Mark at the 2015 Lakeland 50 - hope to get back running with my mate soon.
