    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 the 16th of September this year I'm going to race in my first Olympic distance Triathlon in Brighton. It involves swimming 1500 metres in the English Channel, a 40 kilometre bike along the sea front and a 10 kilometre run to finish off. At the start of the year I was barely able to swim a lap of the pool and would end hanging on to the edge nearly hyperventilating. I've spent the year training hard to improve on my nearly non existent swimming skills along with a bunch of biking and running and I think I might just be ready!

    So, I've decided to mark this personal challenge by raising money for our kids school. We have had some huge cutbacks to the school's budget and they need all the help they can get. The funds raised will help with a much needed update of the school library. Give us your money!

      Thank you so much everyone!!! We've raised £970 + £30 in cash, so thats £1000!!!! It was tough on the day but I did it, finished 61st out of 347 who finished, the pressure of having people sponsor me certainly helped push me on. Also knowing on the day I had all that support from everyone was wonderful - thank you, it really helped. I've never done Just Giving before and have just been told they take a small amount in fee's, and it takes a few days for the money to transfer. Really looking forward to handing it over to the school!
