Weʼre raising £300 to provide garden furniture for Parkhill Lodge Care Home

11 days to go

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.


Parkhill Lodge is a residential care home that's looked after my aunt Carol in one respect or another for almost as long as I remember! It started as respite care and day trips, and now Carol lives there full time. The staff work tirelessly to make sure the residents are looked after, but also manage to have some fun! Even after a day out with the family including ducks and rice pudding (two of her favourite things), Carol is never sad to be returning to Parkhill, which shows how much she enjoys it there!

The staff at Parkhill really do the best they can with what they've got, but on those few warm days in the summer they don't have anywhere for the residents to sit and enjoy the sun. So while I'm praying for no sun on marathon day, I'm hoping to raise enough for some garden furniture so everyone at Parkill can make the most of the sunny days when they do come!

    Thanks everyone so much for your donations, they really spurred me on in those last (rather painful) miles. I'm sure the residents will greatly appreciate your generosity too when the sun decides to come out!
