£260raised of £2,000 target by 10 supporters

    Weʼve raised £260 to 10 day Cambodia trekking challenge in aid of cancer charities

    Funded on Saturday, 1st December 2018

    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 many of you know, my dearest father died last year of cancer, he was a strong man till the end, and one of his wishes was to scatter his ashes in places he always wanted to visit, as the world traveller himself, one of the places is Jaipur, in India, which my wonderful daughter is fulfilling for him, and the other one is Cambodia, I didn't just wanted to visit this beautiful country without doing something for the wonderful organisations who are researching a cure for cancer, or the wonderful support they provide for the terminally ill.

    Not only am I doing this for my father, but also for myself, as I have left behind quite a few turbulent years. Now with the support of my Slimming World team leader Jenny ,my dearest friends and loving family, I have turned my lifestyle around, and feel on top of the world again, and ready to embark on this amazing, physical and mentally challenge!

    I do hope you will be able to sponsor me, with however small or large amount you feel comfortable with, everything is very much appreciated, and I love you all very much!!

    Your support means a lot to me, and through this page I will keep you up to date with my progress, plus my personal pages on social media, that I will let you know on an individual basis.

    Throughout 2018, I will do my training (which I have already started:)), and organise several fund raising events, to which I will keep you informed about.........

    Thank you!!

    With Kindest Regards

    Yvonne xxxx

      I have now completed this amazing challenge, in aid of Cancer Research UK, and in loving memory of my father, who has now found his last resting place in the Holy waters at Angkor Wot. It has been a very hard challenge, and coped with the humidity and the heat, but I've done it, Thank you all so much for your amazing support, without you, I couldn't have done.. There are some amazing photos on my Facebook page. With much love, Yvonne xxxx

      Dearest friends and family, it is only 4 days away to embark on my amazing challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK and in loving memory of my father and my dearest friend Jan Martin's sister, Diane Gibson (68) also so cruelly taken away from us from this dreadful disease! I have now completed the fundraising for the charity and raised over £1500, however there is still time to donate to the actual challenge, and all proceeds will be used to fund local schools and community projects in Siem Reap, which I will keep you informed of, during my trip.
