£70raised of £5,000 target by 3 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to Fund entry fees for the 33rd Marathon de Sables so I can then focus on fundraising for Combat Stress, and The Royal Signals Benevolent Fund

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.


As a serving Soldier, I always aim to challenge myself whilst fundraising. I have entered the 33rd Marathon de Sables - a 250km footrace across the Moroccan Sahara (known as the hardest footrace on the planet) in order to fundraise for two charities supporting service personnel and veterans (Combat Stress and the Royal Signals Benevolent Fund).

The entry fees for the event are significant and I am unable to cover them all myself whilst focusing on fundraising. This crowdfund is to assist me with these entrance fees . These two charities provide immense support for service personnel and veterans and any money raised will be split 75/25% between them respectively). I regularly fundraise using physical challenges (see my other events!) and am looking forward to the adventure that comes with this event.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any support you can give me with this endeavour.
