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.


My son's 'Woodheys Primary School' is in desperate need of redeveloping the existing and well worn astroturf that is now 12 years old and nearing the end of its life. The school has already set up a fundraising committee in order to raise the aspirational target of over £40,000 and Toni and I'd like to contribute by fundraising at least £300 to help with that.

I haven't run properly since I had my two boys, but got convinced by our current au pair Toni to help her run her first half marathon. So this run will do two good things in one go :-).

We'd really appreciate all your help and I'm sure all the kids and teachers at Woodheys would do too. Thanks a lot in advance for all your donations!
