Weʼre raising £250 to Raise money for PFP's chosen charity - The Silverlining Brain Injury Charity
- Preston, UK
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.
To do my part towards raising money for PFP's chosen charity - The Siverlinings I have chose to participate in this years 6 mile Yorkshire WineAThlon with my friend Ashleigh on Saturday 22nd September 2018.
As you all know, I'll be good at the wine drinking part of this task and not so much the 6 mile run! So I hope you will help me support this fantastic charity by sponsoring me in this bit of fun activity!
The Silverlining Charity aim to improve the quality of life of all those affected by brain injury. Silverlining work hard to engage brain injured people with the wider community in order to help them to discover a sense of purpose, social structure and added meaning to their lives.
In the UK, every 90 seconds someone is admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury. Due to the nature of the human brain, every injury acquired is unique. For some, their injuries may have little to almost no impact on their day-to-day lives, whilst for others, every aspect of their life may change as a result of the injuries they have suffered.
The Silverlining Charity offers opportunities for all those affected by brain injury to get involved in activities within their community. Those that use the services of Silverlining include the brain injured as well as family members and friends who can often be overlooked despite the effects brain injury can have on loved ones.
Membership of the Silverlining Charity is free and the majority of the activities they run are also free with these held all over the UK. Silverlining offers a great opportunity to adults of all abilities, with the belief that disability should never be a barrier to personal achievement.
Silverlining West Midlands is the newest exciting endeavour. They are working with a large team of volunteers from across the county to plan and run free and low cost events for local brain injury survivors and family members.
