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.


The Rooted Project works with young people who have additional physical, mental or emotional needs. The small team provide a safe space to grow, learn and play. They teach life skills such as cooking and gardening as well as trips out to Dartmoor.

They're hoping to build a new indoor sensory room this year, install a dedicated kitchen area and raise funds to take the children out on more activities.

They are a charity and rely on volunteers, goodwill and limited funding to do the work they do. Project Leader Rose is a trooper and works her socks but she can't do it alone so we're helping out! There's a team running a marathon later this year, carboots sales, the kids do regular cake sales in the local park, raffle donations and events...and me! I'm going to attempt to run 1000 miles in 2018, I've never run more than 12 miles a week and this is going to need at least 20 and a lot of positive thinking!

If I can get £1 a mile that would enable the team to do LOADS. So please do scritch around for a spare golden nugget and give me a reason to keep running!

    Suns out Guns out! It was glorious here today, went out for what was a mildly frustrating and much harder than necessary 4.8 miles which topped off my weekly target (YAY) So that's 21.5 miles for the week and I am on schedule to meet my monthly target for the first time ever. (was SO close last month missed it by 1 mile but injury scuppered me) I wore my new vest and ran like it was summer though...

    Hey, so impressed by your determination. You've come so far. @0 miles a week is a huge and gruelling output. Stay focused. You can do it, and allow yourself some days off too. Congratulations!!
