Weʼre raising £500 to help towards the target for the annual Steel City Derby Charity Day 2018
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.
Hi i’m Paige Salt, I'm 23 years old and I have been an active fundraiser for various charities over the last 7 years but over these last couple of years I've had to go through some very tough times, in 2014 my mum received the devastating news that she got Breast Cancer so I dropped my job, my family and moved up to Scotland to take care of her and after many hospital appointments and two operations she did it and being the strong women she is she battled her way through the chemotherapy.
And October 2016 my dad had gone to the toilet and turned round to open the door and collapsed and was rushed to hospital he had suffered a stroke which then after many scans we then found out he had a brain tumour on the front side of his forehead, it was a very scary time especially being such a serious opperation but he pulled through everything. This last year has been extremely hard for our family but we're as strong as ever.
Now this is the story of how I started my charity work over the years, I lost my bestfriend, Kyle to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome back in October 2011 I have done all sorts of events including my annual 'Steel City Derby Charity Day' in memory of our friendshipas Kyle was a mad Sheffield Wednesday fan and I'm a mad Sheffield United fan, so I am getting together players of each team to go head to head. I will also be holding a raffle and auction during and after the game.
So with me doing so much for the charity 'CRY' over the past 7 years i am now wanting to raise funds and awareness for Macmillan Cancer charity in aid of my mum and dad. So this year will be my 3rd annual charity day and i am extremely proud to be doing it for Macmillian Charity.

You’re doing an amazing thing. There's not many people would take on this fundraising challenge so many years in a row. There are more people than you think supporting you out there.
