Weʼre raising £20,000 to help friend and work colleague Ed Hill. So far this year, we have raised more than £10K overall with various efforts.

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.

Story

Early in 2017, our colleague and friend, Ed Hill, suffered a tragic accident whilst playing football. A simple fall left him wheelchair bound with neck and back injuries, and needing constant care.

The Exchange Lab, Ed's employer, have moved all of their corporate fundraising efforts into raising money to support him and his family. In 2017, over £10K was raised through last-minute efforts and we have seen the huge difference that has made to his life. We are more motivated than ever to continue to help Ed and in 2018 we have an ambitious goal.

A number of The Exchange Lab employees are taking part in a series of extraordinary physical events throughout the year.

With The 100 km Cotswold Way Challenge conquered by 20 the team in June, the next gruelling activity is being taken on by Lizzy Dell'Anno. On July 29, Lizzy will be attempting to cycle 100 miles as part of the Prudential Ride London event. Having only bought a road bike in February, this is a huge challenge for her. Preparation has included countless laps of Richmond Park, as well as a couple of treks to and from Brighton (including cycling up the dreaded Ditchling Beacon!).

Lizzy has never undertaken a challenge like this, but she is motivated to push herself to help Ed in his rehabilitation.

We aim to raise £20,000 and we need all of the help we can get. No amount is too small, so please donate to our cause and help Ed in his long road to recovery.
