raised of £1,500 target by 8 supporters

    Weʼve raised £150 to mobilise Beanzy, I'm running the Swansea Half Marathon on 20th June to help buy a mobility scooter, and help him with his independence.

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Beanzy is 45, and as young as this he has been immobilised as a result of a severe stroke, on 8th May last year. His recovery is slow, but progressive and having discussed the recovery with various doctors - the most progressive contributor to normality is Independence. Relying on people to go anywhere can be soul destroying, depressing and it is affecting his recovery. This fund will help our friend Beanzy with small steps to independence.

    I am running the Swansea half Marathon on the 20th June to help raise money to purchase a mobility aid for Beanzy to not rely on anyone other than himself to get out and about to normal things, like; see friends and family, do his own shopping, visit the doctors the list goes on.

    Any generosity towards the fund will be greatly appreciated, and will contribute to a top guy's independence.

      Beanzy is my best mate, and seeing him progress as slowly as he is, is heartbreaking - I do run, but a Half Marathon in under 2hrs is a massive task for me. I will post all training runs on here - Starting on Monday 28th May 2018.
