£395raised of £500 target by 22 supporters

    Weʼve raised £395 to support the Arunima Hospice in Kolkata, India, for children infected with, or affected by, HIV/AIDS.

    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.


    I have signed up to run a 10k race at Lochore Country Park, Fife on 15th October 2017. This is a huge challenge for me as a new (slow) runner- I have run that far only once, and it took me a longer time than the very last runner in last year's (2016) race! I've three months to prepare, and to inspire me further I'm doing this to support the great work my friend Ross Stirling is doing for the Arunima Hospice in Kolkata, India. The Hospice supports children infected with or affected by HIV / AIDS , who are orphans or have been rejected by their families. Ross visited Arunima in March, and saw at first hand how little the children have and the conditions they live in. He is now fundraising for Arunima for clothes and activities for the children and especially for a new roof to replace the old tin roof and for hospice transport. All money I raise will go to the project through Ross, who comments "no matter how small a donation is, it goes a long way in India."

    Can you make a donation and spur me on to run far and fast for the children and help celebrate my fiftieth birthday year?

      Please do not sponsor me at the moment. It is looking like due to an injury I will need to pull out of the race, but I will see how things are in the next few days. If this happens I will offer everyone their money back, handover all remaining money raised, and pledge to enter another 10k race when I am fit for it . If you have any queries meantime please get in touch or check my Facebook page for updates . thank you all again for your geneousity and faith in me - I can run 10k and will do a 10k race , promise!
