    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.


    In September 2017 Ollie and I will be running a Spartan Sprint race in Marston Lodge. Those of you that know me will know that distance running isn't my 'thing' so 12-16k with 25plus obstacles will be a challenge!!

    With this in mind we decided to try and raise some money for my best friend. He was in an accident when we were 18 years old, 12 years later I have never met someone so strong and positive in life as him.

    Because of his disability, he isn't able to use the muscles in his chest in the same way, causing him to be unable to Cough. This may sound fairly feeble, but whenever he gets ill (unfortunately that's been more than regularly) he can't clear his chest. Currently he has a chest infection, can you imagine not being able to clear your throat, meaning you can't breathe properly causing you to have a panic attack? It must be so scary, yet he doesn't complain, he doesn't moan, he gets on with it.

    There is a piece of equipment that is available to
    purchase that will help him do this, called a Cough Assist Machine. Not only will this be vital when he is unwell, it will also give great peace of mind!! This is a pricey apparatus and hence why we are helping fund raise to get one!

    I would really appreciate any support you can offer, £5, £10 anything would be amazing!

    Thank you!!

    MWJ & Ollie

      So guys. We completed the Spartan Race in just over 3hours! It was challenging and envolved a lot more hills than we'd envisaged! We are keeping the funding open, as we are going to look at something else to do, to raise some more funding!
