    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.


    Nick suffered a very serious stroke in October 2016 and is currently unable to work.

    With a group of friends Sarah and I are planning to do the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge (23rd September) which takes on the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, in under 12 hours. The Yorkshire 3 Peaks route is 24-miles long, and includes 5,200ft (1,585m) of ascent.

    Nick suffered a very serious stroke in October 2016. The stroke was a complete surprise: aged only 51, Nick was incredibly fit and strong, healthy, active. Initially bed ridden, Nick has managed to get back on his feet and start walking again. He is incredibly dedicated and making small progress every day, coached along by his wonderful wife and childhood sweetheart, Jenny. Nick’s biggest challenge is communication. Since the stroke, he has not regained the ability to speak or to express himself through signs or otherwise. Whilst Jenny and Nick seem to have telepathic powers between each other, Nick needs to improve this ability to interact with his environment.Nick is no longer able to work and Jenny has taken a career break to look after him so things are tight. The funds we raise will make a big difference to Nick and Jenny's life.
