    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    Hi There. I'm Karen and I am a Rugby Mum!

    Like a lot of other Mum's I spend my weekends on the sidelines cheering on my Son and his team-mates as they play their matches and grow together along the way.
    Their club is only small but they provide training and matches in a fun and friendly environment for over 60 children and continue to grow. Like most clubs they struggle to make ends meat and require funds to continue their excellent work for my boy and all the kids that enjoy it so much.
    So. I;m using this as my inspiration to try and help them. I have enrolled to do the St. Helens "Couch to 5K" program where people who have never done any type of distance running, like me, are helped to train with the goal of completing a 5K Run on December 3rd. I am determined to to this not only as a personal achievement but also knowing I can help the rugby club by raising some much needed funds to help them.

    Please would you help me, to help them, by making any size of donation you can afford. As the slogan says "every little helps" and would be so much appreciated and put to good use for a community project which has helped to nurture so may kids to play sport where they may not have had the opportunity without the club.

    Thanks All. Wish me Luck!

      An update on the brilliant progress that Karen has made on her challenge. After 4 weeks of training she has hit a target of running 2km without stopping which is awesome at this stage. We fully believe that she will achieve what she set out to do which is a tremendous feat for someone who has never done any distance running before. PLEASE support her cause with whatever you can as community ventures for our kids are so vital and such and experience for all those who take part. Even £1 goes a long way......
