    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.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    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!
