Weʼre raising £23,000 to be distributed to charities, that support people with eating disorders, carefully selected by the family & friends of Molly McLaren.

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.
Sadly, our beautiful Molly was horrifically taken from us on the morning of Thursday 29th June 2017. We would like to channel the support we have already received to support Molly’s commitment to helping those around her. Her ongoing battle with her eating disorder and her drive to help others is the focus of our mission.
Just the evening before Molly was taken from us, she was celebrating with her friends on her success of enrolling on a personal training course which would set her up for the lifelong commitment in health and well-being which was an extension of her current degree of study. This perfectly demonstrates Molly’s passion for promoting self-acceptance of body image, achieved through holistic wellbeing, healthy life style and positive mental attitudes. She actively promoted this through her blog and social media to inspire change and instil confidence in others.
For those of you who were close to Molly, you will know that she battled with bulimia and subsequently anxiety, as a result of an eating disorder, for many years of her life. Instead of letting this beat her, she shared her own story in the hopes of empowering others around her. We want to create a legacy in her honour by channelling her passion and drive to create the most positive outcome possible through the creation of The Molly McLaren Foundation.
We think that it is important to acknowledge all of the amazing, kind donations that we have already received through the Just Giving page thoughtfully already set up. We will be using these funds to get our foundation up and running, and any surplus money will be donated directly to our chosen charities.
We have raised in excess of the original £23000 target. That page is now closed so we are doing it again! We are hoping to sponsor private treatment for sufferers and fill a gap the public sector has left.
