    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.

    Story

    On Saturday 23rd September 2017 I will be doing the London Walking Marathon (26.2 miles) to raise much needed funds for Greys Eleven Plus.

    A bit about this wonderful cause: Greys Eleven Plus is a sanctuary that is run by Carmel Holland to look after old, unwanted and ill greyhounds and lurchers that have nowhere else to go. They are cared for in her home during their twilight years. For some of these ill treated abandoned hounds this is their first taste of home life and to be loved as a pet. Some have never experienced a full tummy and a soft bed. Incredibly sad considering their ages.

    Greys Eleven Plus is a small independently run sanctuary that receives no other funding and relies purely upon donations, so every penny really counts. It costs £75 per month to feed one dog and Carmel often has up to 10 hounds at a time. As you can imagine medication/supplements and vet bills are high and unfortunately can be frequent given the age of the hounds.

    Now for a bit about me! I am passionate about greyhounds they generally have awful lives when racing receiving hardly any care for which they suffer in later life. Yet these beautiful hounds are so gentle and loving. Seeing them blossom is so special.

    Due to my medical conditions I cannot run a marathon as I have had spinal surgery and I also have osteoarthritis in my hip (which needs replacing) so this will be a real challenge for me to complete. But I am so determined to raise these much needed funds and I hope you will all support me.

    My target is £750 so please help me reach (no actually smash!) it.

    Thank you for reading this and all your support.
