£555raised of £2,000 target by 43 supporters

    Weʼve raised £555 to Help Tony with his specialist swing.

    Funded on Saturday, 28th January 2017

    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.


    We did the assault course for Tony! Wow did we suffer! Please take a look at the pics by copying the link below, pasting it into your browser and then entering bib number 76.


    We are keeping this page open until the New Year, so there is time to give a donation! Thank you sooo much to those who have donated already!

    This is Tony. Tony lives in a village in Cambridgeshire, he has a learning disability, and he is supported in his own bungalow by one of the amazing Thera East Anglia Teams. Tony is a well-known and well-loved character in his community.

    Times are tough for many of us, and it is no different for Tony: Tony has a few things he needs to pay for, but his garden swing is of particular importance to him. The swing in Tony's garden is a specialist piece of equipment, which requires some maintenance and safety flooring underneath it in order to keep Tony safe. The swing is not a luxury for Tony, it is a necessity, and an amazing sensory experience for him.

    Some work has already been done to access funds to pay for the maintenance and specialist flooring, but this is not enough. Some people who support Tony have decided to put themselves through cold, muddy agony in order to raise more funds!

    We know you are bombarded by requests for money often. The more you can donate the better: but even a small amount will count. Tony loves and needs his specialist swing, and any surplus money made can and will be used to help Tony around his garden and home via other projects.

    Please give what you can, and please share this page via your use of social media! If you share this just giving page on your own Facebook, please remember, more people will see it if you set the post to 'public' rather than just 'friends'.

    Just a few quid to acknowledge the pain and discomfort we went through for Tony!

    Thank you so much from the Thera East Anglia team!

      A new race has been organised, and even tougher than the original (and certainly colder)! We will now cover a very demanding 6K course called 'Judgement Day' - organised by Military Fitness. This will take place on December 17th 2016. We will report on this after the event!

      OK, due to unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances, we could not attend the race today. We are able to transfer the race to the next date, so your generous donations will still be rewarded by us being covered in mud. This Just Giving page remains open for a long while yet, so, we wil announce the new race date very soon. Thank you. Justin.
