£7,500raised of £5,000 target by 157 supporters

    Weʼve raised £7,500 to support the Tansy Stowell Research Award, in memory of our sister.

    Trottiscliffe >> North Downs Way >> Dymchurch
    Funded on Wednesday, 8th August 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 July 25th 2017, Tansy left this world too soon after 28 short, beautifully lived, years. To mark the first anniversary of her passing, her sister Holly, brother Jonathan and brother-in-law Aaron, will hike 100km from her home in North West Kent, to the Kent coast, raising funds for the Tansy Stowell Research Award. Your support and donations would mean the world to us.

    *About the Award*
    Developed by her family and tutors at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) in Rochester, where she earned her first degree, the Award of a trophy plus £100 toward study materials will be presented each year to a student who has shown exceptional research and studentship skills, and gone above and beyond in supporting their peers and staff. Exactly as Tansy did. For the first five years, it will be kindly funded by one of Tansy's tutors but we want to ensure it can go on for many many years to come.

    Our goal is £1000, supporting the award for 10 years. If we can raise more, we could look to increase the number of years and the value of the award; for example, £2000 could cover an increased award for 15 years, £3000 for 20 years, £4000 for 25 years etc.

    *The Hike!*
    100km over two days (25th / 26th July 2018), starting at Tansy's home in Trottiscliffe, then along the North Downs, past UCA and finishing in Dymchurch where she spent many happy summers growing up.

    *Want to get involved?*
    Help us train! We will be doing a number of training walks between now and July; if you fancy a decent weekend hike on the North Downs, let us know and we'd love to have you join us. We'll update you on our training by posting here and on Facebook, all encouragement welcome!

    Let's do this! xxx

      From Tansy's parents: We are immensely proud of what Holly, Aaron and Jonathan have achieved in honouring our beloved Tansy. Their inspiration has shown that out of tragedy and loss, good can come. We have been overwhelmed by the love and support which has encouraged them on their way. Thanks to your generosity they have raised an incredible sum which will enhance the lives of many for years to come. It is a privilege to have such an amazing family and Tansy will be with us always. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Sally and Steve

      At 10:32 last night we reached Dymchurch, 2 days & 100km after setting off from Tansy's family home in Trottiscliffe. Our incredible support crew of family Stowell & Reeves kept us hydrated & fed in the intense heat, culminating in a cheers to you Tansy under the full moon by the sea. Your messages and support kept us going! Because of the wonderful amount raised we'll be in discussions with the University about the best way to use the funds but all will go towards supporting the students 🙂. Thank you to you all for your love and support 💜

      Looks like we'll be hiking in the hottest weather the UK has to offer 😁! Two days to go! In this photo we're all geared-up and about to do our last walk before it kicks off on Wednesday. Lots of prep went on last weekend and our training has tapered off in favour of eating lots of carbs and building up our energy supplies! Looking forward to the challenge ahead. Thank you for your support xxx
