    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    India Hope has set up 35 orphanages and schools which care for more than 6500 children. The charity receives no government funding. Although their school year should have started on 1st June, this has been delayed due to the on-going Covid crisis. There is an urgent need of funds to ensure the children have the clothing and supplies needed for them to start the next school year. Education is such an important part in any child’s life and it is especially important in India so that they can give each child the foundations to find work and have a career. Many of their pupils go on to train at the technical or nursing college that the charity also runs, and in turn they help and give back to the charity that supported them.

    We are raising funds by walking the Coast to Coast. The footpath begins in St Bees on the West coast and runs over Lakeland fells, through Swaledale and over the Yorkshire moors to reach Robin Hood's Bay on the East coast. If we don't add on too many miles by getting lost, the walk is just over 190 miles and involves just short of 20,000 feet of ascent. We are aiming to complete it in 14 days.

      Unfortunately my 100 year old mum has recently been ill and we are in the process of transferring her into a local residential home (in Cumbria). This is proving complex and we have therefore reluctantly decided to postpone our walk. Please let us know if you would like your donation returned. If we don't hear from you we will hold it over until such time as we can don our walking boots again. You can email me on Again - our thanks for all of your support

      Will be thinking of you....every step of the way! Hope it's not too gruelling and you enjoy seeing God's creation all around you.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!

    We are both keen walkers. In 2008 we walked the Coast to Coast footpath for the first time - when we were rather younger than we are now!
