Weʼre raising £300 to help raise funds for Colchester Rough Sleepers Group.

Colchester, UK

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.


I'm running the Colchester Half Marathon in March to raise funds for the conversion of Chariot 180, aka the Colchester Mobile Homeless Shelter.

Colchester Rough Sleepers Group is converting an old coach into a mobile over-night shelter for the homeless people of Colchester. This takes money and time and through their incredible fundraising activities so far, they've already got the bus and have started transforming it into a place that will be safe and comfortable for anyone who's staying the night.

I'm running the half marathon in 2019 to raise funds (and awareness) for the conversion work, as well as towards the on-going essentials they'll need once the bus is on the road! [ I got to sit behind the wheel a few weeks ago but can promise I won't be driving it ;) ]

Running 13 miles will be a massive challenge for me but one that I'm really looking forward to... I think. .. Any support, no matter how small or large, will be very gratefully received.

You can find out more about Colchester Rough Sleepers Group and all the work they're doing on their Facebook page.

Thank you for reading this far!
