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.

I had a love of mountains from a young age. Growing up in the Lakes it was something I took for granted. This all changed when sustaining a high level spinal injury falling from my bike in July 2012.
This Saturday (July 28th) we have set our sights on getting to the top of Helvellyn by wheelchair.
This follows successfully summiting Mount Snowdon in the same wheelchair last summer.
The heroic journey starts from Patterdale at 10am on Saturday morning. The challenge certainly wont be easy but will be satisfying.
The task ahead will be a real team effort. I am not light so it will be physical effort for those around me who I will have to trust to keep hold of me on tricky terrain.
All monies raised will go towards supporting the much needed community projects of improving Grasmere and Greenbank parks.

About the fundraiser
Most people take things for granted, something true for me prior to my spinal injury in July 2012. Whilst for most the fells are there to climb at our leisure. My challenge will be very different, putting much trust in the efforts of my team to scale Helvellyn from Glenridding.
