Weʼre raising £500 to help fund Longwell Green Stroke & Social Club
- Bristol, UK
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.
My mum, Mandy, had a stroke two days before Christmas 2012. Since then she has been so positive about life, she stays so happy and motivated that she is a true inspiration.
Two years ago my brother Sam and I ran the Great Bristol Half Marathon to raise funds for a stroke club that my mum attends every Tuesday and thanks to everyones generosity we raised just over £800. That amount has enabled the club members to continue to enjoy days out, activities every week including Keep Fit, Bingo, and craft making and the occasional pub lunch.
Although the club is run by volunteers the weekly membership fee doesn’t cover all their expenditure and therefore I am running the Great Bristol 10k in May and the Great Bristol Half Marathon in September this year, so please help me to raise my target of £500 this will enable my mum and the other stroke survivors of Longwell Green Stroke & Social Club to continue to meet and enjoy themselves. For some it is the only chance they get to go out and meet people during the week.
