£700raised of £500 target by 45 supporters

    Weʼve raised £700 to 50/50 split between Access Sport Manchester and We Love Manchester

    Funded on Tuesday, 21st November 2017

    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.


    We plan to raise money for 2 amazing local charities, Access Sport who help disadvantaged children through sport in Manchester and We Love Manchester which is the fund to support victims of the Manchester bombing. I am sure you will agree both very deserving causes.

    Its fair to say that both of us are carrying a little too much weight and therefore we are planning on a sponsored slim. The target is to lose 5 stone between us from 1st September to 1st December. As men who like food this is not going to be easy, which is why we hope to raise as much money as possible to keep us motivated and to help the charities as much as possible.

    Thank you for your donation. Richard and Craig
