What is crowdfunding?

Story

Last summer we noticed that our teenage daughter wasn‘t eating in the same way as she was known for. We went through a very stressful and emotional time and at first had no idea where to turn or what to do for the best. From the very first call with a consultant at the Brownhill’s centre in Cheltenham which is THE clinic for eating disorders in Gloucestershire, we were given practical advise and constant support. We then had regular visits to the centre and how they helped the whole family was nothing short of amazing and without them I dont even want to think where we would be now, but I do know we wouldn’t be in ”recovery” or in the postive situation we are now at. During the times where, as a parent, you question what you are doing, are you doing the right thing and how can you get through the next day without tears and upset, our personal consultant gave us constant encouragemnet and unending support. Thankfully we are on the otherside of this mental illness now but there are more teenagers in need of this support and help than they have facilities for so any money raised will help towards more counsellors to help more children, adults and their families . I will also be raising money for The Claire Foster Memorial Fund which donates money each year to fantastic good causes and local charities that are close to the hearts of the staff of Albatross Travel - a company wishing to do good in local communities.
