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 nonprofit.

Story

In August 2020, my friend Sam lost his wife Lauren to cancer.

Sam was made redundant in July, and is now looking for a way he can balance working with taking care of their young daughter Molly as a lone parent. Obviously, his top priority right now is Molly.

Read more about Sam, Lauren and Molly.

On September 26th, I'll be swimming 1 mile in open water at Hever Castle in Kent to help fundraise so Sam can concentrate on looking after Molly without money worries.

Sam and I only worked together for a short time, but that was enough for me to see what a nice person he is, and how much love he and Lauren shared. I hope you can help me #HelpTheRobinsons.

    Saturday was the day of the Hever Castle 1 Mile Swim. The water was a chilly 13° as I slid into the depths with all the grace of a sealion. The first part was a bit scary, as you strike out for the middle of the lake. This was followed by a much shallower river section, then I was working my way towards the orange inflatable FINISH archway. I crawled out like a drowned rat and was given a medal and a paper cup of hot Ribena. I did it! More importantly, you've helped me raise over £550 for #HelpTheRobinsons, doubling my target amount.

    Thank you so much for your support and donations! You've smashed my target of £250, and I can't wait to surprise Sam with at least £360 in the bag. I've just had a lovely swim in the Beckenham lake in the pouring rain, trialling the secondhand wetsuit I panic-bought from eBay in case I need it, so I feel well prepared for tomorrow. Stay tuned!
