Weʼre raising £500 to Create a Chance for Christopher

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.


I am going to be completing the 3 Peaks Challenge on Thursday 5th July 2018. The 3 Peaks Challenge involves trekking the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in one continuous 24 hour attempt! I will be conquering Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon which entails walking over 25 miles of rough and rocky terrain, whilst battling against unpredictable weather conditions and climbing around 3500m! I will be raising money for my nephew, Christopher, who has a severe form of autism.

Christopher is 19 years old and about to leave his special school where he has been for the last 15 years. He will attend college in St Albans 4 days a week and the transition for him will be difficult as he moves into adult services. We continue to work with his challenging behaviour with a specialist program in the USA. Growing Minds have given us a chance to develop Christopher way beyond expectations and we continue to access their services. For anyone interested in the programs they run you can access their website We have visited them several times in America for week long courses that have helped us develop a home education program.

Thank you for helping to continue to Create a Chance for Christopher .
