£2,900raised of £2,000 target by 83 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,900 to Raise funds for Park Lodge Strictly & The NI Children's Hospice

    Belfast, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 2nd December 2016

    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.


    I had hoped to do something spectacular to commemorate my 50th birthday such as running over Ben Nevis or cycling the Alps. Instead I will be dancing in front of 1000 people in the Whitla Hall on 19th November (tickets still available) in "Strictly Park Lodge".Those who know me will understand just how far this is outside my comfort zone as grace and agility are not my strengths.
    Park Lodge Primary School has served the community in North Belfast for over 50 years. It has educated me and my four children. We aim to raise funds to replace much needed resources, to provide a literacy programme and enhance the assistance given to those children with special needs.
    We are also raising money for NI Children's Hospice.The Hospice provided wonderful care to my much missed sister Lucy and needs our support to continue to provide that level of care.
    Please give generously.
