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.


In June I will be walking the full length of the Leeds to Liverpool Canal over 7 days, this is 127.25 miles (204km).

I am doing this to raise money for the Jack K Johnstone foundation, you are able to read more about Jack's story below.

Jack's Story:

Jack was never an ordinary boy. He was always special. He was born on 2nd of September 2006 and diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis a short time later.

At age 4, Jack contracted a bacteria in his lungs. This bacteria was called Non-TB Mycobacterium Abscesses (NTM) and extremely difficult to treat which resulted in Jack requiring a Double Lung transplant on November 8th 2015.

Despite the operation going very well initially, this bacterial infection was found to be growing into his new lungs and he required intensive IV treatment. On 23rd November 2016 Jacks health deteriorated significantly and was admitted into hospital. Despite all the efforts of medical professionals and his family Jack fell asleep in the arms of his Mother and Father by his side on 14th December 2016. Jack was 10 years of age.

The Foundation has been set up to support other families with children who are experiencing life changing disability and/or sibling bereavement. By event

​fundraising and the work of our volunteers we hope to touch the life of as many children as possible in the name of Jack Johnstone.
