Weʼre raising £200 to get me to Portishead for the 401 Challenge in August.

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.


This series of running races raises funds for The 401 Foundation which provides grants to community projects and individuals in building confidence and self esteem along with tackling mental health and so overcome bullying.
I really want to support them but the costs involved in competing in a 5k and a half marathon on one day and a 10k and a 6.1k the following morning (race fees, accommodation, travel, etc) are beyond me. Moaned on Facebook and many people want to help so, although I am reluctant to accept as, on the face of it, it seemed selfish as I would be having heaps of fun that others have paid for, helping any cause that reduces the impact of mental health is worth the effort! So please help get me there! Event takes place on 24 and 25 August, the weekend after my first Half Marathon!

    Thinking back to your school days, have any of you ever been bullied? Have any of you feared that you may become a target for bullies? Do you think your school experiences, the scary play times, lunch breaks, have contributed to the way you feel and act now? Can you imagine then, how wonderful it would have been if those fears, worries and anguish were replaced with happy, relaxed school days? Running into school with a smile on your face as you anticipate meeting up with friends and having fun? Would you be the same person you are today?

    Thank you very much to those who have donated so far! The more I get, the more will be given to the charity. Being bullied is often the start of year and years living with the misery that is poor mental health. Being given the skills to turn you into the sort of person who will NOT be a target, is a marvelous gift. The more children who escape this scenario early, or even before it starts, will have a much better future, a happier future, one that does not include taking tablets for depression for years and years. Please help me help!

    You're so encouraging and supportive, it's nice to be able to help you and raise funds for such a great cause. My son has had a hard time with being bullied so I'm only too aware of the damage xxx
