Weʼre raising £2,000 to help Mark Abram and his family

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.


Mark Abram was diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer in April 2017 which devastated him and his family.

Mark's friends and work colleagues sprung into action to support him and his family through such a difficult time.
Successful fundraising events in 2017 included Wigan 10k, 6-a-side Football Tournament and an '80s themed fancy dress night. Both Mark and Mandy were incredibly moved by the amount of support they received from their friends and beyond.

As a Royal Mail employee, Mark received full pay whilst absent from work for a period of six months followed by a further six months at half pay. Now, over a year since his diagnosis, Mark is in receipt of statutory sick pay.

We have two events confirmed so far for 2018 - four of Mark's close friends are participating in Tough Mudder Yorkshire on Sunday 29th July and the 6-a-side Football Tournament will take place on Saturday 4th August at Hindley Green FC, Thomas Street, Hindley Green.

Any donations, large or small, would be gratefully received.

    Great day yesterday at Tough Mudder Yorkshire where myself, Ben Hunt, Steven Parker and Stephen Ward completed the full course. Massive thanks to everyone who donated in support of Mark and a special thanks to Andy Dutton for being our driver, photographer and main support on the day. Top man! All eyes now turn to this Saturday and the 6-a-side football tournament at Hindley Green FC, hope to see lots of Mark's family and friends down there from 2pm. Post-event drinks at The Swan pub on Atherton Road, Hindley Green from approx. 4:30pm
