Weʼve raised £355 to help my third year degree show in London (I'm running a half marathon!)
- Cardiff Half Marathon
- Funded on Wednesday, 31st October 2018
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.
I am raising money to go towards the UWE 2019 third year degree show in London.
This is an incredible chance for our work to be seen by a huge audience and can lead to lots of exciting opportunities for us once we graduate. As a year we need to raise around £15,000 to make this show possible (which includes hiring the space, making catalogues, advertising, and transporting all the work from Bristol to London and lots more!) We'll all be working on one project for most of, if not all, of this final year, and it's important that we allow it to be seen by as many people as possible.
So I have decided to put myself through the Cardiff Half Marathon once again on the 7th October in an attempt to raise some money myself to help the degree show happen. Anything you donate will be a huge help and I can't thank you enough.

Last year I ran it in 2 hours 1 minute. I'm hoping to beat that this year!

Thank you everyone for all the support! Completed the half marathon in 1 hour 44 minutes yesterday (cutting 16 minutes off last years time!) Lost a toenail in the process but have hit my fundraising target so thank you all for making it worth it.
