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.


On Thursday May 24th Alys lost her battle with cancer that lasted over 2 years, she was at Marie Curie hospice in Solihull with all her family around her lay in her husband Matts arms. She took a great deal of solace in her blog plot twist, telling everyone of her incredible story, i’d implore you to have a read through her page just once more, you never know how it could help you. If life gives you lemons......

So last year, 6 of us got together to walk 44 miles to raise funds for Matt, Alys and Tom to go away and create as many memories as they can. After an absolutely gruelling day with countless blisters, injuries, aches, pains , a hospital visit and crutches for a week we managed to raise £5987 for those memories! Amongst a few other things they went on a family holiday to PortugaI and the biggie was Matt was able to join Alys and Tom for a Christmas trip to lapland they won through Heart FM. It was absolutely worth it and would we do it again? You betcha, so we are!

Alys legacy will live on in the form of LemonAid, so we’ll be walking a kilometer for each year of her beautiful life, 31km in a day or for those not up to such a distance, a lemonaid dash of half the distance! Leaving and finishing from the Land Rover social in Solihull (there will also be a family fun day for the afternoon too, if you want to join in on the walk this year or want a stall at the family day please email

All proceeds will be donated to Marie Curie hospice in Solihull by her family in memory of Alys, we are aiming to smash through last years figure so dig deep where you can!

Much loves x
