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.


Vicky and Debbie are running the Manchester Half Marathon and we are terrified! We are 'running' for our friend Rhian and her gorgeous family.

Our lovely friend Rhian and I know each other because our children are best friends at nursery. Rhian is like us - we enjoy Prosecco, a gossip and we love getting dressed up and going to an event or two!!

On Thursday 7th December 2017 Rhian woke up and instantly felt unwell, so unwell she somehow knew she needed medical help and fast. She collapsed at home on the bedroom floor from an AVM (arteriovenous malformation) causing a hemorrhagic stroke, brain AVMs are rare and affect less than 1 percent of the population. What's even rarer is that Rhian was pregnant. Rhian was on the floor for 7.5 hours with Alfie still in his cot - something that I struggle to get my head round now. She must have been so scared and Alfie must have wondered what the hell was going on.

This was the start of a very long journey for Rhian. Today she is awake from a coma, laughing, smiling and trying to recover as quickly as possible.

The reason we are fundraising for Rhian is because their battle is just beginning. Rhian is unable to work and we thought that if I can do some fundraising to help them out in any tiny way then we shall! They will have to think about childcare, home adaptations and all sorts that we would never think about until something like this happens. Her hard working partner Jay has also got a long journey ahead of him with a three year old and a newborn baby at home!

If you can donate in any way to help this amazingly strong family we would appreciate it. I want to help them in any way we can so in advance we thank you and please know that your donation WILL make a difference.

If you'd like to laugh at us stumbling through a half Marathon it is on May 20th in Manchester city centre. When filling in the application form it asked us how long it would take us to run a half marathon - there wasn't a tick box for 12 hours so we've gone with three! Wish us luck!

Thank you everyone, we shall be in the pub on the evening of the 20th May for a rather large G&T if anyone would like to assist us with that!!!
