    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.


    My name is Paul Fowler I'm running the Peterborough Great Eastern Run on the 8th October 2017.
    At the age of 53, running my first half marathon, I needed something to focus my mind on and decided I would try to raise some money for the Phoenix School in Orton Malborne, Peterborough.

    Phoenix School, founded in 2004, is a designated mixed day Special School for children between the ages of 2 and 19 who have learning difficulties which may be severe or profound and multiple.

    My cover photo is a picture of Spencer, who along with his friends, are always smiling because they love the Phoenix School, Peterborough.

    Rated by Ofsted as Outstanding its values are:

    A climate that fosters fun, leaning for all and a positive self image.

    Great relationships between staff and children, school and home, school and the wider community.

    An environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and is of equal worth.

    A diverse learning environment where individuals prosper.

    The Friends of Phoenix School have over time raised many thousands of pounds to be able to enrich the lives of the pupils at the school. They have bought items such as mini buses, playground equipment,touch screen televisions, holidays and days out for the children.
    This is a voluntary association and the school places great value on its support and the funds its raises.

    I hope you like me believe this is a great cause and worthy of your donations.

    I would like to thank you for your support.

      Update from the Page owner

      The half marathon was hard work but I beat my goal of two hours to do it in 1 hour 51 minutes and 19 seconds, well worth the challenge for such a great cause. Thanks to everyone who came out on the day to cheer me along! I am sure the funds raised will be put to good use. Thanks again, Paul
