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 mum in law sadly passed away in July this year from a severe and sudden stroke. The following few days were intense with emotion in which I shared in the privilege of washing my mum in laws body as preparation for her burial. This moment will remain with me as the most beautiful sense of peacefulness. To complete the journey I flew to Bangladesh where she wished to be laid to rest.
In her memory I plan to start a women's refuge in Sylhet, Bangladesh. My mum in law was kind, compassionate and committed to helping and supporting the poor and vulnerable in her local community. I will always remember how she first welcomed me into her home treating me as her own daughter, I wish to share her kindness through this project.
In an effort to encourage the fund raising I will be running the following half marathons:-
New Forest half marathon on Sunday 10 September 2017
Oxford half marathon on Sunday 8 October 2017
