£1,370raised of £5,000 target by 38 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund therapeutic support for all the families we work with on New Beginnings


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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


New Beginnings works with families who are in the child protection process and who have often experienced prolonged episodes of trauma, such as physical, sexual and emotional abuse, at some point in their lives. Our vision is to work closely with families so that they can turn their lives around and, in return, teach other families how to do the same. All the parents and children who are part of New Beginnings benefit from the therapeutic care we offer such as art workshops, counselling, holistic therapy, equine therapy, and energy healing. New Beginnings has only been going for a year but we have already worked with 18 families and we would love to work with many many more. For us to be able to provide continuous therapeutic care, we have decided to raise money by doing a 13 mile walk-athon relay on Saturday the 21st of September. Parents, children and support staff will be taking in turns to walk a half marathon course in Stockport. If you can donate to this worthwhile cause we would greatly appreciate it. Believe us when we say....every penny counts. Thank you.

    Although we haven't reached our target we are over the moon with the number of supportive messages and generous donations we have received. We mean it when we say every penny counts- it really does- so from all of us a big thank you. If you're interested in joining us for the walk next Saturday, please see the map attached for more information. We will have coffee and cakes, there will be laughter and little people in wellies, along with fluffy dogs and maybe a cat or 2. The only thing we suggest you bring is a smile and an umbrella :)
