Weʼre raising £300 to Help 95 year old John Bowen who is a WWII Welsh Guards Veteran visit the grave of his fallen comrades.
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.
John Bowen is a 95 year old WWII Welsh Guards veteran who has stated that he would like to visit the place of his fallen comrades before his time is up. My wife, children and I had the privilege of spending a few hours with this amazing gentleman in our Welsh Guards association Llanelli branch Christmas dinner. I just wanted to try and help fund something that would mean so much to this humble man. To try and help fund this great cause I'm doing the Llanelli Half Marathon on the 10th Feb. Please give as much or as little as possible. All donations greatly appreciated for a great man.

About the fundraiser
After speaking to John Bowen on our Christmas dinner I just felt I had to do something to try and help raise funds for John to go and say goodbye to his fallen comrades before his own time was up.
