    Weʼve raised £605 to help the children who attend Beatlie School Campus

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 15th October 2017

    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.


    My 1st crowdfunding page has closed and the total raised so far is £180.00 Many thanks to all who donated :Patricia Hampton,Margaret &Ken Turnbull,Gavin Orr,Norman Dixon,Craig Stewart
    I am adding the money to this page so as I can donate the full amount come the end of October when I have completed my marathon in Lisbon

    I will be participating in races
    ranging from 5k to marathon distance in 2017 to help raise funds for the pupils who attend Beatlie School Campus in Livingston.
    I had the privelage of working there many years ago and the staff who work there do a fantastic job with the children and their families.
    The staff at the school have created a wonderful environment for the pupils whos ages ranges from nursery to 18 years old and have severe and complex learning difficulties.
    All the funds I raise will be used towards communication aids for the pupils which will be of great help in their learning and communicating with the people around them.

    My first main event of the year was my half marathon in Berlin in April followed by the Edinburgh 10miler.
    I then went on to do a 10k trail race in May and another 10k trail race in June in the Mabie Forest.
    Next race will be Haddington Half Marathon in August followed by a 10k in September in Cumbernauld which will lead me on to my BIG and final race of the year Lisbon Marathon in October

    Thank you for reading my page and thank you in advance for supporting me.
    It means so much to me and the children and staff of Beatlie School.

      I completed my marathon in Lisbon on the 15th of October.It was a scorching hot day with temperatures of 35 degrees which is a tad too hot for running but I was determined to finish no matter what. Thank you to each and every one of you who donated. You are all amazing and helped me reach my target and more 👍 I visited Beatlie School today and handed over the cheque for £700 which they were delighted with👍 Thank you so much everyone

      Haven't posted for a while due family stuff which is a long story Thankfully everyone is on the mend and that's the main thing. So I am now into week 9 of Lisbon Training and completed a 20 mile run this morning which went well 👍and was pleased I got through it without any of the ill effects I had at the Haddington Half Marathon last weekend 😃 Thankyou so much to everyone who has donated so far. It gives me purpose on my long runs that you are all supporting me and will be so excited to the hand over the money at the end of October
