raised of £10,000 target by 140 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to Due to a lack of funding and sponsorship for the Inter-counties Cross country, it looks like 2021 is in jeopardy of not going ahead.

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Actions speak louder than words.

Myself and Simon Prior are putting together a go fund me page to raise money for the UK County Athletics Union to support the survival of Inter-Counties Cross Country. It’s 95 years old this year and financially it’s not got a lot in the coffers about £8,000. As it’s my birthday I’d like to do something to protect this association for the future of our young athletes as well as protect athletes, coaches, clubs and counties. The inter-counties championships means a lot to me. I’ve contributed for years to different charities but I want to do something to now help my sport and especially this cause. It costs the CAU about 35k to host this championship and so myself and Simon have set an ambitious target of £10,000 to help. I hope you can all contribute what you can. Thanks in advance from myself and Simon.

Yours in Athletics.
