Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

Mike and I are putting our best wheel forward to raise money for charity by cycling from Lands’ End to John O’ Groats. We will cycle 912.9 miles and 46,929 vertical feet to raise money for local charity Our Space and the school’s Edenhurst Parent and Teacher Association (EPTA) to upgrade the school's playground.
We will depart from Land’s End on 14th July, and aim to complete the challenge in just 10 days. We are aiming to raise £10,000 for our chosen causes - very ambitious, but hopefully achievable with the support of our fantastic Edenhurst community!
Many of you will know that I am an enthusiastic cyclist. I've always wanted to do LEJOG and he have somehow managed to talk Mr. Hibbert into taking part too, to raise money for the School and our nominated charity, Our Space.
Our Space is a local charity that provides unique social and recreational opportunities for children and adults with disabilities from its specialist facility, The Brook Centre, in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
We will donate half the funds raised to Our Space and the other half will be donated to the Edenhurst Parent and Teacher Association (EPTA), who are raising money towards resurfacing the School’s playground.
Edenhurst Preparatory School is part of Bellevue Education. In a bid to ensure as much money goes to charity as possible, Bellevue Education will be supporting the duo by covering the cost of accommodation along the route.
The target of £10,000 is ambitious and we are very grateful for the support we have already received from parents at the school, colleagues, and friends and family. During their House Activity Day, the Edenhurst pupils designed T-shirts to support our cycle.
We would like to thank all our many sponsors so far for their fantastic support and generosity.”
