Weʼve raised £0 to raise money for Leighton Hospital's Ward 17 because of the brilliant work that they do!

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 will be completing a SkyDive this year to help raise money for the ongoing fundraiser we are running at the company I work for, Click Dealer.
Two of my good friends and work colleagues had some terrible news last year when their son, Jude, contracted Meningitis and the staff at Ward 17 were the ones who saved his life. So as a thank you, Click as a business committed to helping raise money for their charity. The full story is at the bottom.
Anyone who knows me well will know that I am absolutely s*it scared of heights and just looking at the website and typing this now is giving me palpitations haha.
BUT, I love a challenge and as a business we set a goal of £20,000 to raise for the charity and we are determined to hit that goal.
Every little helps

Click Dealer is currently over half way to achieving its fundraising target of £20,000 for Leighton Hospital's Ward 17 after numerous charity events and in house fundraisers.
In 2017, the company has competed in two gruelling Born Survivor challenges, one in Manchester, the other in the Lake District. The Clickers have also completed the arduous Three Peaks Challenge in under 24 hours and taken part in a Halloween dress up day in the office!
In March 2017, Click Dealer Director Pippa Rawlinson and Head of Sales Lee Rawlinson’s young son Jude was treated on Leighton Hospital’s Ward 17 for Meningitis and thanks to his tremendous fighting spirit and the work of the dedicated medical professionals, he is now back at home and on the road to recovery.
In order to thank the hospital and to ensure that care can continue to be given to any children unfortunate enough to contract the Meningitis virus in the future, Lee and Pippa would like to give something back to the ward to ensure that their good work continues, Lee said:” The level of care given to Jude whilst he was in hospital was first class, he couldn’t have been in better hands.
“Thanks to the talented medical staff on Ward 17 our Son Jude is now back at home and on the mend and we couldn’t possibly be more grateful for that.”
Director and Head of Customer Care, Pippa added:” This was such a scary time for our family and the friendly and knowledgeable staff on Ward 17 really helped us through it and were brilliant with Jude too.
“I can’t speak highly enough of them all and we want to raise money to make sure that their brilliant work carries on and they can help others in the same way that they helped our Son.”
