Weʼre raising £100,000 to help Alan Blake, in his 90th year, climb round his steep garden, to raise money for Parkinson's, Rotary club, and Burghill church.

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Alan aims to navigate the majestic hills and mountains of Wales, England, Scotland and beyond, without leaving his own garden. Alan will be raising money for Parkinson’s, Rotary and the local Parish church of Burghill.

Alan will be climbing the bank of his steep riverside garden to complete the same amount of steps as it would take to climb the mountains that he loves.

To complete this challenge Alan will climb the 120 circular steps around his garden on a daily basis. Since October Alan has climbed the Blorenge, the Sugar Loaf, the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons, Cadar Idris, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and is currently climbing Ben Nevis and beyond – Alan has so far climbed over 5,500 steps, and counting.

Alan has been a member of the City of Hereford Rotary Club for more than 50 years and has also been supporting and caring for his wife who has had Parkinson’s for over two decades.

    A small contribution towards your walk in the garden, which I appreciate is no small effort.
