    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 my two beautiful and much missed boys - Joshua who would be 30 on 11 June and Harry who would be 18 on 21 July, I will be completing two challenges on the weekend of Harry's 18th birthday. On 21 July I hope to complete a Couch to 5k run. As anybody who was at school with me knows, I am no runner! I have never attempted to run before, and in honour of Harry who loved a real challenge, I'm going to attempt to run 5k barefoot. Well, I will have a little bit of rubber to protect my feet from glass and other nasties, but no fancy springy trainers! On 22 July I will climb Pen-y-Fan, the biggest mountain South Wales has to offer. Sponsor money raised will go to three charities - Wick Youth Club, where Harry loved to let off steam as a youngster and then returned to volunteer as a teenager; Croeso Llantwit which is a charity aiming to bring a Syrian refugee family to settle in Wales (two of Harry's best friends at college are Syrian and I know this would be a charity close to his heart); and finally a third of funds raised will go towards improving mental health services at Llantwit Major School. Please help if you are able to. Many thanks, Karen xxx
