Weʼre raising £6,000 to help fund a new running track for the children of Westpark and the local community of Northfield.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
At Westpark, we are trying to improve the well-being of not only our children but the whole of the community. Over the past two years, the levels of activity has gone from strength to strength but this hasn't come easy. We train in very poor conditions, crossing very busy roads to get to water-logged parks. It's far from ideal for the 40+ children who consistently turn up, and has been cancelled on far too many occasions for safety concerns. Having a track on the school grounds would make a massive difference to the lives of everyone in the area. We don't have the facilities in Northfield and they are badly needed. We have got a good portion of the funds required but still need more. This would be the final push to improve the quality and safety of training for all.
As our way of raising some more awareness and funds for the project, 10 members of staff and Westpark family are running 171 miles continuously from Maidstone to Dover to Brighton. We are far from the fastest and certainly not the fittest group, but we intend on starting and finishing this race, running from morning through the night. This in itself is surely worth a little donation!
