    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.

    Story

    On Saturday 5th August, I am taking part in the Super Serious Swim of 3.2 miles along the North Cornish Coast in aid of the Lewis Moodie Foundation and The Danny Porter Foundation.

    The Lewis Moody Foundation supports young families tackling serious illness. The charity aims to raise money to fund vital research into brain tumours, reduce diagnosis times through the HeadSmart campaign and give families affected much needed respite and the chance to create special memories. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 and I know that many of us have friends, or friends of friends, affected by this.

    Secondly, The Danny Porter Foundation was set up by Dan, my husband's lifelong best friend (and I quite like him too). In May 2005, shortly after the birth of his first son, Dan was diagnosed with ACC (Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma) - a rare facial cancer.

    Since this diagnosis Dan has had several major surgeries that have involved the loss of his right eye and most of the bone structure in the right hand side of his face and nasal cavities, necessitating extensive restructuring. He has also undergone rigorous and pioneering radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments. Despite this, Dan has remained positive and launched The Danny Porter Foundation which has, to date, raised over £100,000 to help with the fight against cancer. http://dannyporterfoundation.org

    So, in support of our amazing Dan and the Lewis Moodie Foundation, I will be attempting to swim 3.2 miles along the North Cornish Coast (and yes, the 0.2 bit is relevant as at this stage, I will be crying into the sea). This swim is way out of my comfort zone (I could do with 6 months training and longer arms) but I will give it a bloody good shot. So please, grab your purses and throw some cash in my direction if you can. I will do my very best.
