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.
Hello. I am running the Ealing Half Marathon again this year with my dedicated other half, Sital, to raise funds in preparation for our next visit to support our ancestral village schools in India, Bakapur and Langeri.
A quick update! Having worked hard to raise the funds last year we made our long journey to India in April 2017.
You will have seen from the video that our charity Education Independence and Bhangraburnoff shared recently on Facebook, that our first visit to India was very successful. Once there we were humbled to meet the staff and the wonderful children. With the funds raised we were able to purchase a year’s supply of stationery for both schools, sandals for the children, chairs for staff and a water filter to access clean water on site. We also treated the children a session of Bhangraburnoff followed by a lunch of veggie burgers, drinks and sweets which was a real treat for them all!
We receive regular updates on the progress of the children. They have taken part in several district competitions for writing, art, speech and sports days. They have come first, second and third in these competitions and won medals and trophies. We are very proud of their achievements and want to continue to support them.
Many thanks to all of you who made contributions last year. You made this happen. Please support us again this year and look out for updates on Facebook!

Thank you for all the contributions so far! We are overwhelmed by the support from you all! Sunday 24th September was a hot day for a 13 mile run, but we did it! We were seen off at the start line by a dhol player which set the pace and the mood for a victory. As we approached the 6 mile mark we felt good and ready to endure the undulations that kept coming just as we thought enough was enough. The last kilometer was the longest and the hardest as we crossed the line with the greatest of relief, collected our medals & goodies and headed home.
