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.
So after completing my first half Marathon in May, I swore never again!. So here I am again about to complete my second half marathon on Sunday, the Sturminster Half Marathon. With hardly any training, I know it is going to be tough so I thought it would be worth wile trying to raise some money while I do it!. My chosen charity is Bradford Abbas Preschool, where Ava attended this year. This is an amazing pre school and registered as Outstanding by Ofsted.
As a registered charity they receive funding from the government for all children attending who are aged three and above (from the beginning of the term after their 3rd birthday), and also for some children aged two years and six months depending upon their circumstances. However, the funding alone does not cover the cost of running a pre-school, coupled with some recent government cutbacks which mean that all staff training now has to be paid for from their own pockets you can see it is a very tight ship indeed!.
Therefore new books, equipment, furniture and staff wages are all dependant on fundraising. I am hoping to raise £200 to help children have fun whilst learning.
