£130raised of £300 target by 9 supporters

    Weʼve raised £130 to help the restoration of the Wilbarston Church Bells by running the Leicester Half Marathon on 15 October 2017

    Wilbarston, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 17th November 2017

    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.


    I am a bell ringer at the church in Wilbarston on the Northamptonshire/Leicestershire border. The bells are in desperate need of attention so that they can continue to be rung in the years to come. The cost of renovation is going to be approximately £32,400 of which we have so far raised £17,300 from generous donations and a number of local fund raising events.
    My family and I have signed up to the Leicester Half Marathon on 15 October 2017 so that we can raise money for the bells, so please sponsor us. It is my first ever half marathon and it is a long way and your support will keep me going.

      Well, the day of our big Half Marathon eventually arrived. We were all a bit nervous, especially me being a first timer. We all managed to get round, but I must say it was the hardest thing I have ever done.I could hardly walk when I finished and it took about half an hour to get to the car, which was only five minutes away. I feel a great sense of achievement and am very pleased it is over. I would like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us and will let you know how much we raised when I have had time to count it all up.

      I thought I would just give you a quick update as to how my training is getting on. I am getting a bit worried as there is only a month to go. Trying to train at least 4 times a week, but sometimes the real battle is just getting out. Really pleased this morning as managed to complete 16km, but cannot move now. If you have not already please sponsor me.
