£1,370raised of £3,000 target by 37 supporters

    Funded on Wednesday, 31st October 2018

    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

    Myself, along with my brother in law Tom are trying to raise £3,000 as part of a larger project of raising £32,000 to buy a new coach for The Royal Variety Golf Society.

    They are a fantastic charity who fundraise to purchase buses for schools and care centres who look after disabled or disadvantaged children.

    More information can be found on their website: http://varietygolf.org.uk/

    This charity was very close to the Chairman of my employer, Tom Hilliard OBE, who sadly passed away in March this year. He was Chairman of the society for many years and was extremely proud of the Charity and the work they do.

    Therefore to honour Tom and the legacy he leaves behind we are running The Surrey Hills Challenge Ultra Marathon, dubbed "the biggest sporting challenge in Surrey" on 23 September 2018 with the hope of raising £3,000.

    Starting in Haslemere, this is a 60km run with over 2,000m of climbing over the biggest hills in Surrey which finishes at Denbies Vineyard in Dorking.

    Any donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated and will help chip away at the £3,000 target. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO GIFT AID!!

    Thanks in advance for your generosity and support for such a great cause.

    James & Tom

      Training run done today (Thames Meander Marathon) as continued prep is taking place for the big one in a few weeks. First time doing a marathon so took it easy as didn’t want to knacker myself for next weeks’ training. Felt good throughout HOWEVER it was a flat course so no reflection of the beast that’s coming my way 😬 Anyway if you haven’t already done so please do donate..we have made an in-road into the target but still a looooong way to go. Thanks, James
