raised of £250 target by 7 supporters

Weʼre raising £250 to fix the dry rot problem in St Mary's church, Droylsden. Any excess will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society.

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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


St Mary's church has a problem with dry rot in the community room. It is not covered by insurance so we have to fix it oursleves. Due to the current restrictions, there is very little cash coming in. So I'm walking the equivalent of the distance between York Minster and Canterbury Cathedral. If you can sponsor me, it will make the walk seem easier.

UPDATE The insurance company have agreed to cover some of the cost of the repair, so we need only to find the excess. If I exceed my new target, the extra funds will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society.

    What a lovely week it's been weather wise! I've done a couple of 5 mile walks and a few shorter ones, so 15miles added. Covered 85 miles now which means I'm 'approaching' Grantham in Lincs. Just 200 more to Go!!! This image is of Janet's Foss at Malham, N Yorks, taken on Monday. It was a good walk, gentle to being with, then a schlep up to the top of the Cove. I didn't fancy descending via the steps as they are quite narrow, not much chance of distancing from other walkers. So I went against my usual rule and did a 'there and back'.

    Last week was a good week in terms of clocking up the miles. A few days away in West Yorkshire was just what I didin't know I needed. A further 23 miles added which brings me to Nottinghamshire. About a seventh of the way there! Say it quick and it doesn't seem so bad :-) Thanks to all those who have donated so far. We've got a total of £100!

    After a week of didging the showers and gales, I've reached a disitance of 25miles - just under a tenth of the way from York Minster to Canterbury Cathedral. Thank goodness the insurance company has agreed to cover the majority of the cost. This means I have been able to reduce my target amount to £250.00. If you good folks donate more than this, it will be donated to the Alzheimer's Society. Grateful thanks to those who have already given, and for all oyur messages of support.
