Weʼre raising £1,000 to raise money for 3 charities close to my heart
- 18 days to go
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.
I will be raising money to partake in the Salford Triathalon this year, with all proceeds raised going to three charities very close to my heart.
The first charity is one called SAFARI, who support those falsely accused with referenced information. Afer a difficult few years, SAFARI is one of a number of organisations in that field that has been of support to my family and I.
The second charity that I will be raising money for is WELOVEMCR. During the time of the Manchester Arena attack and my circumstances at the time, I unfortunately could not offer help or support in any form. Now that I am in a position where I have the opportunity to do so, I wish to give back to this charity who offer their support to those affected by the attack both directly and indirectly.
The final charity I am raising proceeds for is BritishRedCross. During an already difficult time in my life, I had the unfortunate news of my Nanna's passing. Nanna and I would often talk about my future ambitions to complete triathlons whilst supporting charitable work in the process. Supporting BritishRedCross during this event is my way of giving back to Nanna's favourtite charity on her behalf.
The event is on Sunday 29th July 2018. Any donations or means of support would be greatly appreciated.
