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.


In memory of a beautiful friend of 30 years Jo who very sadly passed away last year, I will be walking 100km Thames Path in 24 hours to raise funds for two very worthy charities close to her heart, Cynthia Spencer and Second Hope.

Jo was originally diagnosed with primary breast cancer which she bravely overcame but was unfortunately later diagnosed with incurable secondary cancer.

The cover photo was taken in Budapest on one of our many girls trips over the 30 year friendship with a very special group of friends. In fact, my last memories of Jo are on a girls trip to Berlin just before Jo passed away. It was not an easy trip for Jo but she still managed to smile and laugh whilst holding on to life and ensuring the best was made of each moment.

Joanne was a keen supporter of Second Hope charity raising large funds herself for this charity. It is the only UK charity specifically for people living with advanced breast cancer.(see link).second hope.

I have set this page up with the full support of Tom, Oliver, Charles, Jo's Mum Hazel, and sister Andrea.

All donations no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated and funds raised will be divided equally between the two charities.
