Weʼre raising £150 to Help fund the Chloe and Liam "TOGETHER FOREVER TRUST" and DURHAM HOSPITALS RADIO free service to patients in hospital and listeners at home
- North East England
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.
Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. We are Matthew (7) and Martha (6) and we are really excited to be running together again to raise much needed funds for two causes close to our hearts.
We are competing in this years Mini Great North Run on September 8th at Newcastle/Gateshead for...
The Together Forever Trust
Set up by the families of Chloe Rutherford and Liam Curry who tragically lost their lives during the terror attack at Manchester Arena on 22nd May 2017. Chloe is Matthew's cousin, and she lived in the same street. He misses her so much. Chloe had a passion for performing and Liams' love of sport knew no bounds. The trust aims to help those who have the potential to go far in the world of performance or sport but do not have the funds to further their talents. Both Chloe and Liam were full of passion and potential which was cruelly taken away. The Charity funds bursaries to help others try to fulfil their dreams.
Chloe loved singing and performing. And we want to give people who are interested in music and performance a chance. While cricket was Liams' love - he loved his sport - I know how expensive the performance side can be, with the cost of exams and various qualifications, and sometimes it can be those that can prevent someone from making a career out of something they are good at and are passionate about, and that's where the Trust will step in, to help in someway so that the person can achieve their dreams. - Lisa Rutherford (Chloes' Mam)
Chloe and Liam will be always in our hearts. Two beautiful young people, totally in love, taken far too soon. Their love will live on and will be shared by those who benefit from the Together Forever Trust.
Durham Hospitals Radio
This award winning station has to raise all of it's funds and we have tried to help by running the Mini Great North Run for the last two year, this year is our third race. DHR keeps the patients, their families, friends and the wider community entertained 24 hours a day 7 days a week and is manned totally by a small team of 16 volunteers. They cover all of Durham Women's Football Clubs home matches (which can be heard within the hospital and also via the internet ) and the home games of Sunderland AFC and Newcastle United FC (within the hospital). We would like to buy some new music for Durham Hospitals Radio to play to their lovely listeners and help make their days (and nights) brighter. DHR also need up upgrade their studios to keep the gremlins at bay (please don't feed them after midnight!) Durham Hospitals Radio broadcast worldwide via www.dhradio.org.uk
DHR was nominated for 5 awards at the HBA National Radio Awards in 2007 and won a Silver Award for Special Event broadcasting. Nominated again for 5 awards this year they came away with a Silver for "Best Speech Package" and a Bronze for Special Event. A huge achievement for such a little station. We thought they did brilliantly! Please help them to play more music to make everyone's days brighter. We appear a lot on the station with our Kiddies Corner feature and we have even interviewed Chris and Pui from CBeebies and hope to do more.
Chloe and her friend Amy Ridley recorded an interview and songs for DHR, the songs are played frequently, they are so beautiful. The station also regularly plays out tracks from a fundraising CD recorded for the Together Forever Trust.
We are hoping for sunshine, and a lovely pasta party after our 1.5K run. In fact we have told our Mammies that we are going to run so fast that it will be hard for them to keep up :) They are already panicking about how far ahead WE will finish.
Please sponsor us. Every penny helps - and we all will be very grateful for your support. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
