£3,905raised of £3,000 target by 132 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,905 to Joe Heraty Family Trust

    St Albans, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 16th August 2018

    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.


    On 20th April 2018, Joe tragically passed away. He leaves his wife Laura and two year old son, Leo. This page is dedicated to raising money to help his immediate family and for a charity of the families‘

    choice. Myself, Kev Twomey, Kev Putman, James Broom, Mark Cassidy and Dan Doran are running the Wheathampstead 10k on 20th May, aiming to run under 40 minutes. While the distance is small, the cause is great. Please give generously.

      So we all made it round, albeit a little slower than anticipated! (The heat, tricky course made it very hard work!) I am sure Heraty was looking down on us laughing and willing us over the line: Laing ,Doran ,Twomey Putman ,Broomy, Cass all just outside 40 minutes! Well done lads! A great effort, Joe would have loved that! Please continue to share and forward on.

      Thanks so much again to everyone who has made a donation or has shared the cause. Originally, I set out to raise a few hundred pounds but definitely underestimated how much of a positive impact Joe made with people at every stage of his life! Everyone loved Joe! The run is tomorrow, please continue to share and forward on. I have raised the target amount again - money will be shared between the Joe Heraty Family Trust, Winston’s Wish (charity for children of deceased parents) and Trees for Cities. Many thanks again.

      Absolutely amazing - £2000 target has been reached in just one week! It is so nice reading the messages from old friends, as well as people Joe came into contact with more recently. Thank you all so much again for your generosity and support. Mark Cassidy has also agreed to run, good luck Mark! Joe’s funeral is at The Catholic Church of Our Lady and St Michael (WD25 0NE) this Wednesday 16th May at 11:30am. The service is open to everyone who would like to pay their respects and say goodbye to Joe.
