Weʼve raised £1,265 to support the development of an educational fund in memory of Fiona Braidwood
- Bristol, UK
- Funded on Monday, 1st October 2018
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.
Fi Braidwood, from Banwell, North Somerset, died aged 17 at Southmead Hospital on the 30th of March 2016, following a car accident in which she sustained a serious head injury.
People for Research is a specialist research company who sources participants across the UK for market research in Bristol, and are running the Great Bristol Half Marathon on 23.09.2018. Fi touched some of the colleagues hearts, who include her sister's best friends. Yet all ages in the company wish to contribute their efforts to this special fund that has been created. 13 miles is a huge challenge for the team but know Fi would have stepped up to it!
Fi loved learning and in her honour, the Braidwood family are in the process of developing Fees (Fiona's Enrichment Education Support) Fund which will enable young people to enrich their learning, both locally where Fi herself studied and further afield at Durham University where Fi had ambitions of studying.
This fund will be available to young people and groups of young people who want to pursue enrichment activities- it will remove financial barrier and support young people to following their dreams and reaching their potential.
Fi's family and friends are extremely grateful for any contributions towards Fi's bursary fund and thank you in advance.
