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 have managed to qualify to represent Great Britain in Australia , in September , at the World Triathlon Championships . A life long dream ♥️ This has to be all self funded from race entry , kit, flights , accommodation, transfers etc. Unfortunately, i have only been self employed , running my own PT business for 2 years and never in my wildest dreams , did I think , as I stood on the start line at the Eton Dorney qualifying race , that I would be good enough . But I am and I really don't want to miss an opportunity of a lifetime.

I have some savings to help me get someway there but not quite enough ...😒

So , if you are reading this, and have a spare fiver and you don't need it , you could , if you fancied , help fund my dream . Or if you are an organisation and want to help , in return of having your logo on my kit , feel free to get in contact .

You can read My blog for more information.

Any additional funds raised will be donated to the Mental Health Charity, Mind.
