£1,185raised of £2,000 target by 47 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,185 to help Bolton Smiley Faces (Downs Syndrome Support Group) raise funds for days out and activities for the children who attend

    Funded on Wednesday, 21st November 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 charity.

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


    Bolton Smiley Faces is a Downs Syndrome Support Group set up by Jacqui Grady.
    It's very close to my heart, as my Son, Thomas, attends the group, and he absolutely loves it. They have a monthly meet at Leverhulme Park in Bolton where all the children do arts and crafts, sing, read stories and play games together. They also have a Speech and Language Therapist who helps to teach our children to communicate.
    Jacqui and her daughter, Nat, organise trips out and mini breaks / adventures. A lot of hard work is put in, but they rely solely on donations to keep providing for the children.
    Me and Frank are hoping to raise £2000 by doing the Robin Hood 100 Mile Run on 15th September, to show our appreciation to Jacqui and Nat, and relieve some of the pressure they are under to keep our children happy no matter what the cost.
    We would be very grateful if you could dig deep for this wonderful cause, you will be making a huge difference for a lot of children. Let's keep them smiling ☺
    Thanks for taking the time to read my crowd funding story 👍

      This time in 3 weeks we'll be on the finishing straight for our 100 mile run after running all day and night 😀 Me and Frank ran 2 Southport last week (30 mile) which wasn't too bad, but not even a third of the distance we're doing haha 🙈 It's going 2 be a tough day, but with us being finely tuned athletic machines, we'll find a way 😀 Please keep sharing people, it's for a belting cause, tell your friends and family 2 share, the further it goes, the happier u'll make the kids 👍
