    Weʼve raised £1,819 to send our friend on an adventures to create lasting memories for her daughter after being diagnosed with terminal cancer.

    Funded on Saturday, 31st August 2019

    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.


    Our dear friend, colleague and ex-housemate Janine has been fighting breast and ovarian cancer for a year, she had the all clear only just a few months ago.

    Janine recently suffered a week long migraine and after a lot of test, scans and a few days in hospital, Janine was told that sadly the cancer has spread into her brain. She has 4 mestatic lesions and facing the reality of a terminal diagnosis.

    This is a dreadful shock to her, and her close family and friends, she has fought so hard and been so brave, positive and determined her only wish was to spend more time with her daughter Charlotte and husband Matt

    Sadly it will not be possible to get her to Disney on advice of her medical team and so we are now looking to get her and her family on as many mini adventures as possible in the time she has.

    There are a number of events that have now been set up to raise funds:

    Dave Watson & John Rose will RUN a 24hr / 100 mile race through Sherwood Forrest

    Carl Jones & nick Hawkins will be abseiling from the National Lift tower in Northampton which they allege is the tallest permanent abseil tower in the world.

    Clara O'Donnell with be swimming the equivalent distance of the channel at Bosworth Hall (2213 lengths!).

    Thanks for taking the time to read this, and please anything you can give to support this cause, or suggestion for events you'd like to run then please do so now as time is so precious especially for this lovely family.
