    Weʼve raised £720 to buy new outdoor play equipment for St Philips Marsh Nursery

    Bristol, UK
    Funded on Friday, 1st June 2018

    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.


    On Sunday the 18th of March I was supposed to be running my first ever half marathon at the Weston Super Half in Weston-super-Mare to raise funds to buy some very needed outdoor play equipment for St. Philips Marsh Nursery School in Bristol. Unfortunately the race was cancelled due to snow, but i will complete the half marathon distance in the next few weeks - watch this space!

    St Philips Marsh Nursery school is a wonderful, lively and inclusive Local Authority pre-school and nursery close to the heart of Bristol. It is run by a committed, knowledgeable, creative and caring team of teachers, nursery nurses and senior leaders who work tirelessly to provide the children with a fun and exciting early education. Unfortunately recent Government cuts to the nursery's budget have left them unable to pay for essential updating of play equipment in their outdoor area. The nursery staff and parents of children who attend are working hard to find ways of raising the money needed.

    My little boy attends St Philips. He is always excited to go and has developed into a confident and independent four year old who loves to learn. I want to give back and say thank you. So please help us to raise some of the money needed by digging deep to sponsor me to run my very first half marathon and support this worthy cause!

    Love Ruth ❤️🏃🏼‍♀️

      Woohoo! I did it! On Tuesday the 8th of May (my 40th birthday!), I ran solo from Torre de Benegalbon in Andelucia, along the coast to Malaga and back. This completed my half marathon distance! I am relived and elated 😁. I had hoped to do it in 2.5 hours, but with the direct sun on me on the way back and all the gorgeous photo opportunities along the way, I was a bit slower. Hey ho, I’ll just need to try for my time another day. 😊 🏃🏼‍♀️ Thank you to all of you who have donated! They money is going to a great cause. 👧🏻👦🏽🧒👧🏽🧒🏼 Xxx

      Hi lovely people. I’m still running! Though, unfortunately the Weston Super Half has not been rearranged. I do, however plan to run my half marathon distance in a couple of weeks, hopefully from a fantastic secret location (unless I’ve told you personally that is! 😂). Watch this space!!!

      Ah, because of the bizarre change in the weather, the Weston Super Half was cancelled. I am really disappointed, but it’s beyond anyone’s control, so I’ve had a cosy day in with this little guy instead. I’m going to wait and see if the organisers reschedule later on next week. If not, I’ll either run 13 miles to make the distance, or I’ll enter another race. Whatever I decide, I won’t let you amazing sponsors down. We’ve made almost £600! Maybe this delay will give us a bit of extra time to raise more money for the nursery. Watch this space!
