    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.

    Story

    I first witnessed a family's heartbreaking pain after the loss of their child when I was 14, it was sadly to be repeated in 2014 when my son's friend died, followed by my school friend's beautiful daughter the same year. This section of my "Flights & Feathers" fundraiser is in memory of Hannah Vickery, forever 18....

    ABYSS is the charity chosen by Hannah's mum Debbie.

    In their own words......
    ABYSS is a support group run by bereaved Mums for bereaved Mums. All Angel Mums regardless of age, faith or time since the death of their child are warmly welcomed.
    We know that the death of your child disturbs every aspect of life, including all of your relationships with family, friends and the world at large.
    ABYSS is a place to be yourself, in the utterly changed circumstances in which you find yourself and take strength from the support of others, who know your pain, before returning to daily life and it's challenges.

    " We each have to find our own way through our grief. Just as each child is special and different, so is each mother and our pain when our child dies is unique to us, but we do not have to walk the path alone"

    After being a non sporting participant of a previous fundraiser I assisted with I decided to embark on a Fundraising Marathon Walk where I would walk 26 miles. I was inspired after watching the London Marathon and being a keen dog walker but not a runner decided I would choose to walk the Marathon mileage along Canal paths this Summer. The fundraiser is part of "Flights & Feathers" and and all the money raised on this page goes solely to ABYSS to help to support them in the running of their wonderful organisation and to hopefully help to raise their profile (The flights page is on another section of just giving - The Bradley Hooper Challenge & HIOWAA) )

      I did it! On Sunday I started out for a training session and then just kept going! About a dozen laps of Farnham Park, I lost track but had my walking app on to record the mileage. It was truly exhausting and felt like I was wearing concrete boots for the last 2 laps. But I did it!

      After the successful stall at Hale Carnival we're nearly half way to the £500 target! Cakes and wine on a tombola are great crowd pullers! Sponsored walk will be soon. Thanks to all who have donated so far!
