£110raised of £300 target by 5 supporters

Weʼre raising £300 to fund additional sensory equipment for a close friends little boys school.

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.


As many of you know a very close friend of mine had a traumatic birth which resulted in her precious baby being brain damaged. Louis is a real inspiration and has come on leaps and bounds but unfortuntely doesn‘t have the social or speech skills that we all take for granted. We all understand each child is different but its hard to put your feet in the every day shoes of the parents that look after children with extra needs. I am therefore running the Great East Half Marathon to raise funds to purchase additional sensory equipment for Louis’ school The Bridge School. The target I hope to get is £300.

In addition to this, anything raised above this amount will be equally shared between The Bridge School and Cancer Reseach UK, because cancer affects every single one of us, one way or another.

Those of you that know me well will know this is a major undertaking, I hate running long distrance, always have but anything is possible and I will get to the finish line whether it be run, walk or crawl.
