    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.


    8 year old Sam Hunt was unfortunately diagnosed with Leukaemia, in January. No matter how much chemo he has, there is always a smile on his face.
    Anyone that knows me knows I love to walk. So on the 2nd of September I will be completing the "Cleveland Way", a 109 mile walk from Hemsley to Filey.
    I am not only doing this because it is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but to try and raise money to donate to Sam and his family.
    If Sam can go through what he's going through, i can walk 109 miles.

      Total amount raised after final pledges came in £550.00 it was really nice meeting up with Sam & his mum Liz to present them with the donations & a little keepsake for Sam. Got to do it again now as I have another £60 still to give them from 2 x late donations. Thank you everyone. X

      Sadly mine & Ted's adventure came to an end on Tuesday afternoon when I reached the end of the Cleveland Way & the sign said 'Helmsley 109 miles' Sam & his family have just had a fabulous holiday in Filey & Scarborough and I hope Sam grows to love this area as much as I do. So mine & Ted's adventure comes to an end but we must not forget Sam's Journey continues. It was a privilege to do this walk for Sam, a truly courageous little boy, a real life super hero. Thank you Sam & Team Hunt & Thank you everyone for your support. Phil & Ted xxx❤

      Today i have been finalising my plans for next week, buying essentials for the walk. I also learned that Sam won't finish his chemo until 2021! That's a massive chunk of a little boys life & just re-reinforces to me how important It is to help support Sam & his family in any way i can. Sam's Journey

      Sam is such an inspirational little boy. He has the most gorgeous cheeky smile despite the gruelling treatment he continues to undergo.Good luck on your walk.
