£867raised of £1,000 target by 40 supporters

    Weʼve raised £867 to Support a close friend, Nigel Arnold and his family in his battle to beat Prostate Cancer with money raised to go to support his family!

    Lincoln, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 7th 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.


    Nigel has been involved in Hykeham Tigers Football Club for over 10 years and he has supported so many children in football.

    He has dedicated his time to support me and my team over the last three years as a coach but also as a friend. He is one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet and would do anything to help others.

    This is why myself along with parents of the team are looking to raise £1000 for him and the family to support them in his battle with Prostate Cancer.

    Nigel was sadly diagnosed earlier this year and is awaiting an operation and relevant treatment so times will be challenging over the coming months and he will need our help and support.

    Myself, Carl Houtby and Ben Kennedy all close friends of the family have committed to run the Lincoln Half Marathon on the first of October. For anyone who knows me this is going to be a challenge to say the least but nothing in comparison to Nigels challenge ahead!

    Along with this I am hosting a Charity Football Fun Tournament for our team to play against three friendly teams we know with an added twist of a dads game too which will be interesting to say the least! Over the two events we hope to raise over £1000!

    This is the first time I have undertaken this type of fundraising so I hope that family, friends and associates will help support such a great cause. All funds will 100% go to the family to support them at their time of need and any additional will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK.

    I hope you can support us in our challenges ahead and thank you in advance for your kind donations!

      Three days after the half marathon and I am still feeling good, even if a little tight in the calf muscles! Still final few days for supporting and donating with the presentation to be made at the weekend, so any last minute donations would really help push me closer to the target!

      Less than a week to go Carl, Ben and myself are set for Sundays run! Carl and Ben have trained really hard and are looking to set great times! I however have been hampered by some slight strains, I think someone is telling me something! I am under no illusions this is going to be the hardest thing I have had to do but I am determined to get round and as close to 2 hours as possible! With donations still to be added we are on our way to hitting the target but any more support would be really appreciated #teamtigers #teamarnold

      So after only a few 4-5k runs under my belt I really need to up my game. Aiming for 8 mile run on Monday evening from mine upto Waddington village and back, including a big old hill in preparation for challenge on the 1st. Hoping to run it in 1 hour 15.... if I raise £100 over weekend and I don't beat this time I'll add another £10 in myself!

    As a family man with many a friend and a passion for sport I thought it is right to put both together to help support one of the nicest men you will ever meet! Family and Friends are so important in life, so looking after and supporting them in difficult times is important to me
