Weʼve raised £350 to Lakeland carers, Misbourne explorers and Holmer Green Methodist Pre-school.
- Holmer Green, United Kingdom
- Funded on Sunday, 1st October 2017
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.
This year saw me celebrate my 50th birthday and so I thought it would be good to set myself a challenge to mark the occasion. My brother suggested the Great North Run and like a fool I agreed. Surely it can't be too difficult to run 13.1 miles can it? !! Now I am into my training and am beginning to regret my decision but am determined to complete the challenge and would like to raise some monies for 3 charities along the way.
The first charity is South Lakeland carers which is who my brother Mike works for. They support 1300 carers in South Lakeland 220 of these are young carers. They provide them with emotional support and opportunities to take a break.
The misbourne explorer unit is hoping to take 30 explorers to Canada next year and need to fundraise £10 000 towards the cost and so I would like to help towards this by making a donation.
Holmer Green Methodist Pre-school is where I have worked for the past 9 years and for the past few years we have not been able to buy new toys as we do not have any spare money after paying the bills, I would therefore like to do some fundraising to buy some new toys as some of the toys badly need replacing.
I would therefore be grateful if you could help me with this challenge by making a donation however much you can afford will help.
Many thanks and don't forget to look out for me on the 10th September.
