£1,810raised of £500 target by 58 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,810 to help send my best friend Barto on a holiday.

    Funded on Friday, 6th October 2017

    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.


    One of my best and oldest friends Barto was diagonised with Motor neurone diease a few years ago and since then, his health has deteriorated significantly. He now relies on the constant care of his partner and family and was recently told he has 6 months to live. In order to give him and his partner a well deserved break, I want to raise £500 towards a holiday. Anything raised above this will contribute to making this an even better holiday experience.

    So to raise these funds i stupidly signed for tough mudder and with 7 of my friends we will attempt to complete this course on saturday. Any donations of any value would be very much appreciated as i know this be a welcome gift to Alan, the bravest person i know.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts

    Team Barton

      Fantastic response from every one of you and the people who are donating in other ways. We have more than doubled the target upto now in only 2 days and are blown away. Keep going please as the more we get the better the holiday. There are 8 lads doing the challenge not just me so it's a team effort and we're also grateful to them all. Thanks again and please keep giving if you haven't already. Thankyou Team Barton
