Weʼre raising £1,000 to Raise funds for the Cheesy Waffles Project by completing the great north run and then immediately cycling back to Durham afterwards
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 name is John Appleby and I will be completing 'The Great North Challenge' in order to raise funds for a local charity called The Cheesy Waffles Project and also buy some selection boxes for the children on Tree Tops Ward in Durham.
On Sunday 9ths September I will first complete the Great North Run and then immediately after I will cycle back to Durham covering a route of at least 30 miles.
Here is a little description of what The Cheesy Waffles Project is all about, for more information, look them up on Facebook!
The Cheesy Waffles Project is a Provision for young people with additional needs age 11 – 30 years. Although our project is predominantly for young people with learning disabilities it is not exclusive to and everyone is welcome. We are a non-profitable project delivering clubs and activities for young people to attend in their leisure time. All of our activities are subsidised by grants, donations and our own fundraising efforts to ensure that everyone can afford to take part and have fun together. Young people have the opportunity to take part in residentials, trips away, shopping excursions, meals out, sports activities, cookery programmes etc. This gives them an opportunity to go out without support from their family giving respite to carers but also developing the young people’s independent skills. Young people have the opportunity to engage in community work making gifts for others, working with local trusts, fundraising for chosen charities and supporting local community projects this raises self-esteem and confidence and raises the profile of the young people in their community. All young people learn skills through taking part in activities that will help them with the transition into adulthood and promote self-awareness and independency.
