Weʼve raised £470 to Four Poundland Managers Climbing Ben Nevis to support "Make-A-Wish" "Tommy's" and "Whizz-Kidz"
- Funded on Friday, 31st August 2018
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.
Firstly, can I just take the time to thank you for checking the page and hopefully leaving donation.
So, Jordan, Jon, Dave and Will are climbing Ben Nevis to help raise money for three fantastic charities - Whizz Kidz, Make-A-Wish and Tommy's. The charities do an amazing job helping young children and families. We believe it would be fantastic if you could sponsor us for this mighty climb to help these families. I will atach a short bio of each charity so you can see what they do and why we really need your help!
+ Whizz-Kidz - We're working hard to transform the lives of disabled children across the UK, supporting them to become confident and independent young adults.
+ Tommy's - We fund research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provide pregnancy health information to parents. We believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth. We want every parent to have the best possible pregnancy outcomes and to take home happy, healthy babies.
+ Make-A-Wish - Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and life-changing. We go above and beyond to grant amazing wishes to very amazing children; their One True Wish made a reality at a time when they need it most. Because a child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis - it should be about wonder, joy and hope.
Please see below, the crazy bunch taking on the challenge. As you can see, we all rate ourselves differently on our abilities and fitness levels, but we are all 100% (Dave is 110%) determined to finish the climb. We know its going to be a challenge, and at some points, chances are we'll want to throw in the towel, but then remebering what some of these families are going through will motivate us to carry on. The pain and suffering we will encounter will be nothing that these families face on a daily basis.
So please, donate what you can, even if its only £1, it all goes a long way.
Thank you for reading!
