£1,541raised of £500 target by 64 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,541 to help buy play equipment for Riverbank Nursery.

    Ayr, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Funded on Wednesday, 4th October 2017

    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.


    My brother Michael and his wife Claire adopted Josh, our nephew, 3+ years ago. After a difficult start in life he is making great progress, however he is now approaching his 4th birthday, as yet he is still unable to speak and has recently been diagnosed with autism. He is a wonderful wee character with a cheeky smile, and he receives great benefit and support from attending Riverbank Nursery in Ayr.

    In recognition of this I am running my first ever half-marathon on Sun 1 October at the Great Scottish Run in Glasgow and am hoping to raise funds and accept any donations to allow Riverbank to buy additional play equipment for Josh and the other kids. Any contribution, large or small, is very much appreciated.

      Well the weather today was truly awful however because of the kindness and generosity of so many people it made the actual run a real joy and pleasure. I finished in a respectable time of 2 hrs 11 mins so within my target range and not quite better than the 2hrs 10 mins I had hoped to beat....but there is always next time! Again many many thanks to all of you, Michael, Claire and I are truly touched and the funds raised will be put to very good use, and will hopefully make a very positive difference to Josh and his playmates.
