What is crowdfunding?

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


This year was the toughest year of our lives. After many years of battling with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) on 29th July our beloved mum Maureen was sadly taken from us. In the latter stages of her battle she had numerous admissions to the High Dependency Unit of Ward 23 (Respiratory Medicine) at Royal Preston Hospital. It was in this unit that mums life ended, but as a family, Joanne and myself along with our dad, experienced an amazing feeling of care, warmth and professionalism from all of the staff which helped mum pass away with the dignity she would have appreciated.

Joanne and myself were both keen runners, and have decided to don our running shoes once more and run the Central Lancashire New Years Half Marathon on 8th January 2017. We feel it only fitting to ask all who know us to sponsor us in raising some much needed and deserved funds for ward 23 at Royal Preston Hospital - to help them continue giving others the amazing care they gave our mum.

    Yay we did it! The northern weather was kind to us and we successfully completed the half marathon albeit a little slow! It wasn't about a time, it was about raising money for all the staff on ward 23 who cared for our lovely mum, they do an amazing job every day. We'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us and for those of you who would still like to donated, the page will be open till the end of the month! Big hugs Louise and Joanne xxx

    We are so pleased that after such a short time we have smashed our target! Thank you everyone for your support, we are overwhelmed! So a little update on our training.....Joanne has a dicky hip so her training is going slowly and I am definitely feeling my age! Fear not, sheer stubborn northern grit will get us through the distance and hopefully the coastal breeze will be behind us!!!! Here's hoping we get some thermals for Christmas. Catch up soon Folks xxx
